Raindrops a Poem- in Response to Brenda's Prompt Challenge

Misbah enjoys poetry and loves to convey the messages of Love through her poems.

When it rains

When we get up in the morning and it rains outside, our morale takes a hit, and we tell ourselves that we are going to spend a day as gray and busy as the sky...

What if, in reality, the rain had a lot of good sides and hidden talents?

When it rains, the good thing is that we can (finally) take out our competitor's dragon umbrella, and pretend to be Rihanna (better, of course)

The great thing about the rain is that it makes a perfect excuse to undo... All the stuff we had planned was bothering us a bit. Instead, we'll be able to sit quietly at home, drinking a good hot chocolate in front of the TV. Thank you rain!

After a good storm, it's funny, but everything has a particular smell, and particularly pleasant: the trees, the plants, the grass, the earth, and even the rocks... It's normal: when the rain falls and the wind blows, everything mixes water, earth, vegetation, etc. This gives rise to odors that are highly appreciated by the human nose.

The falling rain is a sound that comes up all the time in relaxation and meditation CDs. It seems that it's great for relaxing, for studying, but also for falling asleep in peace. Not bad isn't it?

It's scientific: rain is loaded with negative ions. And even if their name is not very engaging, these negative ions are known to help us fight against certain respiratory diseases (such as asthma) and chronic fatigue because they participate in air renewal. Another good point for the rain!

Above all, With the rain, you can become a movie star on the cheap, yay!

A set of 5 poems is written in response to a word prompt challenge by our beautiful co-author and a loving friend, "Brenda". We get a fast-paced challenge from her every week and we love it. I am glad this is week 13. Still going good Brenda. The word prompt for this week is "Raindrops"

Worries will fall like raindrops

Someday
all worries will fall from the clouds with
silver rainfall
and you will speak beautifully of love to me again

The sky will smile with a rainbow
and will not shed any more tears

and I will find out
that two souls nestled in each other
fit in one hand

Despite the passage of time, I still play hide and seek

I hide my tears in rainfall and in the crowd

— Misbah

You washed a poem

Among the raindrops
letters fell
to you
my name on the back

in your pocket
you washed a poem
for you folded
more than twice

Raindrops on window

Raindrops on window

When it rains

It falls as light as a cloud of floating dust,
You do not feel it swirling, but you hear,
You hear it falling, how it hits the
gutters on the roofs,

It is refreshing on hot days,
on days that could have been beautiful,
sunny is a depression, It
envelops us, what is it is? Hmm, it's raining

The rain, when you sit near the window
and see it raining, you
realize what you could do at that time, you
remember the days when something was wrong, the
days you lived as if you were dreaming

A rain that reminds you of memories.
Too much thought for a day, no work?
Time for memories of tears, tears hidden within
to pretend that everything is fine that you are Happy!!

Rain brings back memories

Of raindrops are falling slowly,
depicting my emotional states of
Raindrops, which are carried by frames of
time with memories of
raindrops are
my little desires

These drops that flowed, giving back
what I sent to the sky.
These crystal drops come to the mute ones
sent to those recommended for my hopes to refuse
These drops that fall from above
from the weeping cloud directly at me

I gave my spirit to this
I prefer dancing with drops

Spring Waltz

Dancing in the Rain, The
world is drowning with the raindrops
falling, it has a lyrical mood

when the wind hits the windows outside,
it moves the string, it hums again a
sad melody.

And only wet, rainbow-colored droplets
in tulle dresses swirl around,
joyfully and gracefully spinning pirouettes,
in a windward dance.

The wind stopped, he admires the
soaring ballet of rainbow droplets in delight,
grabbed the violin and played with impetus,
our spring waltz.

And then it feels brighter and lighter in my soul,
I want to live again and dance until morning, the
trees rustle, I will sing with them
in your arms.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on May 10, 2021:

Misbah

I love your idea that we be thankful for the rain.

It's a chance to go back and undo.

You are so right about that smell after a storm.

The world just smells fresher...cleaner if you will.

It makes you feel like everything is new, restarting from birth.

There are times the rain is soothing enough to fall asleep.

I guess the one's who make those CD's must know something.

The rain does help clear the air for asthma sufferers...as long as the wind doesn't carry that nasty pollen.

Worries will fall like raindrops is a beautiful poem.

Finding that special moment when love talks to one's heart, making two souls fit together as one.

Great quote. I hide my tears in the rainfall.

I often hide my feelings in a crowd.

You washed a poem reminded me of when I find little notes faded and swirling in the dryer.

The words long gone.

When it rains...i remember those days when it us do hot outside we welcome the rain just to cool things off a bit.

But too much rain that forces one to stay inside can trick your memories into coming out.

You will get no work done this day...for those thoughts keep drifting as you pretend you are happy.

Rain bring back memories is like the rain is a trigger to make our thoughts drift backwards.

Seeing those hopes and desires we asked for silently washed away as God weeps for us trying to mute those hopes.

We live in his light and continue dancing even through our sadness.

Spring Waltz reminds us that no matter how sad we get, we should dance in the rain.

Stay joyful and be happy.

It is then that one finds the rainbow of love.

Dancing together in loving arms.

These are such lovely and meaningful poems.

Each one leads to the next one. Like telling the perfect story.

Great job lady!

I will post a link in the article.
