Many Faces of Rain: A Rhyme to Entertain

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.

-- Roger Miller

Rain can 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

with donating its sound to fireplace cuddle.

But a ruined camping may mean raining for days in a row

after all that excitement and all the happy preparation

something that from memories most of us know

cursing that persistent rain in frustration.

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.

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 an afternoon napping

at night better than counting sheep.
