A Sudden Downpour Poem by Valsa George

A Sudden Downpour

Rating: 4.8


Rain beats down on the window pane
As the flood gates of Heaven suddenly open
It is pouring out in torrential flow
Like a Reservoir, all at once, broken

It has come down as a welcome respite
To fan away the humid sweltering heat
It falls in drops and flows in rivulets
Washing the dust of summer drought

With a sudden burst from the weight laden clouds
It lashes down in steam and fury
Plummeting to form ripples in puddles
And filling pools and ponds in hurry

In slanting sheets, it almost pounds
Flooding roads and making puddle
Gushing through pipes and rushing down drains
Water floods, causing men to waddle

Rain has its abode in heavens so high
And hides behind clouds of mournful gloom
In silver strings, it spans the Earth
And cleanses the plants in resplendent gleam

Sudden is the wind, coming to shoo away the clouds
And the sky is once more cerulean blue
As the music stops and the humdrum stills
The water seeps, giving no evident clue.

After an angry couple's furious fight,
As the house goes back to an uncanny calm,
The rain has vanished, leaving little trace
Cooling the Earth and causing no harm

An eye for details seldom observed by most, put together in beautiful lines and it deserves a toast. Thank you Valsa for sharing.

Heaven’s great reservoir has been broken at once bringing solace to the people distressed by scorching summer! A very nice description of the way it comes down to earth, “It has gushed through pipes and rushed down drains causing temporary water floods”. It has cleansed the plants in glimmers of glorious joys and happiness. After it has disappeared, we find that it has left a cooling impact in our mind! Enjoyed reading this beautiful poem!

After an angry couple's furious fight, As the house goes back to an uncanny calm, The rain has vanished, leaving little trace Cooling the Earth and causing no harm...this metaphorical expression is beautiful.
