A Rainy day at my native place (Maharashtra,India)

I Love Rain

As I have been living in India for years, I love rain. Then I shifted to UAE. Rainfall in UAE is infrequent and does not last for a long period. It mostly rains during the winter period between November and March in the form of short downpours and an occasional thunderstorm. On average, rain falls only 25 days a year. They create artificial rain through cloud seeding process. In India, its rainy season now and I miss those rainy days.

I Miss You, Rain - Poem

With dense black clouds, lightning and thunder you come,

To uplift my mood quickly,

To give me relief from scorching heat.

O soothing rain, I miss you in this arid land.



O undecided rain when I decide to step out, you drizzle,

I miss that unique earthy smell when you mizzle.

On a cold night, you pittar patter on the roof I love to listen,

And the pleasant cool weather you make.



Caught in your surprise downpour,

With no umbrella you made me dance.

U recall me my paper boats sailing down the stream,

And a fun break from school on your heavy shower.



I reminisce the fun of standing under draining pipe from the roof,

Feeling the soft pressure of water on my head,

And shaking droplets collected on leaves,

And splashing muddy puddles.



O dear rain, I miss your cool breeze.

If I were a bird, I would have flown,

Crossing the oceans and the mountains,

To the blessed place you are.



I miss you in this sweltering heat,

I miss you in the day,

I miss you in the night,

Come soon to make me gleeful again.

Your love for rain and your native land shows very clearly in your poem. I like the idea of standing under the drain pipe and getting wet. That would be very refreshing on a hot day! I hope you get some relief from the heat soon.

If you want rain, move here. We have more than enough and would love to share it with you. :)

Oh, yes, I loved the poem.

A lovely poem dedicated to the rain, Rozlin. I love the rain and always welcome storm clouds overhead. Here in Australia we don’t get frequent rainfall either, but we do get more than In UAE thankfully.

I enjoyed this. You must miss the Monsoon season in India.
