Many Faces of Rain: A Poem

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.
