Pleasure From Rain Drops

Rating: 5.0

The cloud acts as the harbinger of rain
That plays at above blue sky.
Rain drops fall from black cloud
On dry apprehensive earth,
Being pitter patter on bushy trees
And on window pane,
Cheer the heart in plethora
Smear the heart and mind
As if it is the smearing of devotee and devotion.
Chilly zephyr placates

The environment and lives around us

Rain drops smear the heart and mind in coldness as the smearing of devotee and devotion or like the rain drops and dust. After coming of rain drops the earth and environment become chill. Mild gentle breeze blows everywhere. Distraught human, animals, birds and reptiles get peace and coldness. Children with gladness wallow and soak. All enjoy the pleasure from rain drops everywhere.” This is the theme of the poem in thumbnail. This is written in Deogarh, Odisha, India and is dedicated to the people of the world.

no matter how many different ways we see the rain, describing it is never enough. Little Drops Of Water... indeed it brings so much happiness! some peoples' lives depend on it. Some people enjoy the rain in itself. Poems such as this one, usually brings me a little closer to my home. First i read your poem Residence and then the Rain. I connected the two. It just made me happy.. Thank you
