It is spectacular to watch the rain. It also brings out some poetic sense in me. In school, we used to have a poem writing competition.
I still remember when I participated in class 4, and the topic given to us was, a Rainy day. Although my poem didn’t get the first prize, but I really enjoyed making compositions.
The following rhyme is an outcome of nostalgia and tough to articulate experiences. Sometimes it’s challenging to write a poem, as it restricts the free form of expression which can be easily done through an article.
But with the rainy season blessing us, the rhyme mode is on. Hope you enjoy!
Ever let the umbrella go in a pouring rain
Danced when those water pearls kissed the ground
Felt the chills of wind that froze your brain
Sung lullabies to the universal sound
Ever heard a song that pauses the present
A song that takes you back to a special time
To a long lost moment often evanescent
To a memory which made your world shine
Ever drawn a picture like a four year old
Scribbling the canvas with colorful crayons
A dreamy landscape, sun made of gold
Radiating the river, caressed by white swans
Ever known a fragrance that was so nostalgic
Like scent of an old book, its pages gone pale
Concealing an aged petal, a story maybe tragic
Written with a purpose, but read like a tale.
Ever written a letter in this Hi tech world
A white sheet, a pen and a thousand words to say
I bet if you get one, it’d make your belly twirl
Take a break, grab a pen, and make someone’s day.
Have a Happy every day!!!
