The Rainy Day—Haiku

Chitrangada loves to express her moods and emotions, through her poems. Most of her poems are free style and spontaneous with Nature at core

The Rainy Day—-Haikus

I heard a gentle tapping on my window. Very soon the sound changed to tip-tap, then the louder pitter-patter. I had to come out of my home to welcome the rains—for the joy it brings to the hearts of almost all the living creatures, to thank the Heavens, to bring this essential element of life to the Earth.

Some Haikus, about a Rainy Day.


1. The tiny drops of rain,
Spreading pure elements on the earth,
Shining like jewels and Pearls.



2. It’s raining and I’m humming,
Splashing bare foot in the puddles,
Now, what’s that echo sound.


3. Tip-tap, drip-drop, pitter-patter
The aroma of the rain is all around,
Listen to the pleasing silence.


4. Let the rain droplets fall,
Let it wash away all the pain,
Let the soul and soil gain.

Lora Hollings on July 21, 2020:

There's nothing more welcoming than the rain which brings life to all earth's beautiful plants and animals! Nothing can survive without it. Your haikus, Chitrangada, remind us of this essential element and also capture the joy and reassurance it brings to our souls that, once more, life can continue on earth and we have much to be thankful for. Uplifting and beautifully done, your haikus are a pleasure to read. Thanks for sharing!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on July 21, 2020:

Your poetry is beautiful, matching those rain-soaked leaves and flowers. As Bill wrote, I also love that last line: "Let the soul and soil gain."

We are getting some rain this week which is also lowering temperatures. It is welcomed!

Besides, the joy and romance it brings to the people’s lives, Good rain, means good crops, and no shortage of food. So, I love the rainy season.
