Blame It All On The Rain Poem by Reshma Ramesh

Blame It All On The Rain

Rating: 4.9

Then with the fall of every dropp of rain,
From nimbus with a grudge,
Into the lap of lush green trees,
Splash my mother's green roof
Onto my out stretched hands,
Wet are my palms, wet is my soul,
Every enviable note these walls
Must have heard, alas! none like
Your voice, like the raga of the rain
In harmony with the pitter patter,
Tuned with the drums of pelting,
Humming with the drizzle,
Blending with the sounds of the shower,
Whispering into the thunder,
From distance it appears like sweet music,
From near it is sweeter than that,
Like the strike of the lightning,
Like the coolness of the shower,
Your aroma from the wet earth makes me fonder,
The puddles now which have formed at my feet,
With the dusky drops from the roof,
Remind me of the muddle in my heart,
As I innocently hear your voice on the other end,
Blame it on the rain, Blame it all on the rain

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, view and concept with the rest of us. You have given an interesting view to the rain combining both the softness of its gentle downpour to the wind blustering pelting rain when a storm develops. And also within this, you have begun to develop a character, a personality for the rain giving it, its own life. There were a couple of errors I found as listed below: First line you have, 'dropp' - should read 'drop' Fifth line you have, 'Onto to my out stretched hands, - remove 'to' Seventh line you have, 'notes' - reads better as 'note' Ninth line you have, 'raga' - should it read, 'rage? ' fifteen line you have, From distance... try From a distance 20th line you have, '...which has formed... try which have formed I also found imagery that began forming in this of two lovers who have set a time to meet, but the rain comes and turns the plans awry, for the rains are heavy and turns the roads to slush. From one view it has bought delay and from the other view it has bought freshness and new life. There was another thing I found and that was in some cases you have given a negative alongside a positive, to give description to the affects being witnessed, e.g. Like the strike of the lightning, Like the coolness of the shower, Very interesting concept indeed. Thanks again for sharing and many blessings to you. (PS sorry for the delay in replying to your email, but have had difficulty logging on)
