Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.
The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with rain.
-- Dolly Parton
Rain may look romantic if reminding of the first date
when like two happy kids you jumped in a puddle
and then many years later it could again elate
while donating its sound to fireplace cuddle.
If plants could speak, a happy story they would tell
as they are thriving on each single droplet of rain
well, just go to woods and you'll know by smell
with all that new oxygen flooding your brain.
Some of us may feel discomfort or pain
with an arthritis in our muscles and joint
so they are not really crazy about a rain
if you are one of them, you got my point.
During times of a prolonged drought
people are praying to see some rain
and that is really beyond any doubt
they want to see it again and again.
Mother Nature may come with monsoon rain or flood
proving how anything in excess may not be good
sometimes causing treacherous sliding mud
everything getting wet more than should.
Rain sounds like a lullaby with monotonous tapping
lulling us slowly into sweet and nourishing sleep
it's a perfect music for afternoon napping
at night better than counting sheep.
