Pleasure From Rain Drops - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

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
Distraught human, animals, birds and reptiles
Who were in need of rain fall?
Children wallow and soak their bodies
Having glee with beam,
All enjoy the pleasure from rain drops
Everywhere in boulevard, in sod
And they enjoy in basement or in edifice.

    xOf course I'm inclined to prefer rain myself :) but it almost always amazes me how much people always seem to long for the wet cadence of it. A lovely rendition of cumulus bursts that sings its own melody in the heart of the listener...

    xA sophisticated write Kumarmani, good work. I recently wrote a much more simplistic poem about rain drops, I decided not to share it but after reading this, I think I will.

    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 (Report)Reply
