Occasional Visitor!

My dear umbrella where are you...
I searched for you in shops and malls.

This hot and humid Season just waits for you.
Frequent pedestrian like us
Would like to hold you to heart,
As you protect us from ultra violet rays.
My dear manufacturer
Why did you prevent the flow of colourful umbrellas into malls and shops.

Today malls are covered with summer outfits.
Please do consider manufacturing
colourful umbrella to suit our outfits too.
We are the frequent travellers on
Roads especially under the bright hot sun.
Umbrellas are the occasional visitors only on rainy season
This is the season we require you the most.

Save it for rainy day
Though the saying applies here.....
But saving it for hot summer days
Can also be one of quotes for the bright summer days.

A frequent road traveller is waiting for you
Please do come!

    Umbrella reminded me a beautiful song from Raj Kapoor's move Shree 420. This occasional visitor if colorful adds beauty to the rainy season. A nice poem. (Report) Reply

    Umbrellas are a great asset especially when we are in the sun or stranded in the rain. Among the great variety of umbrellas, I think, the Japanese variety are the most colourful ones. Anyway, a brilliant poem on an unlikely subject. (Report) Reply

    I have lost so many umbrellas in my life. So I am very much careful and it is true for me, umbrellas are seasonal visitors. (Report) Reply

    Your prayer is heard

    The umbrella may not allow it passing through (Report) Reply

Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
