Summer Rain

Summer Rain short poem

The pitter-patter begins on a cue,
To leave behind shiny drops of dew,
Sparkling with their many colours and hues,
The smell of fresh green grass comes alive, anew.

The quick drops splash down,
Ridding the city of her hot frown,
The dirt & grime are washed away from the town,
And leaving behind a rainbow – the city’s crown.

The rain’s best companion is the strong gust,
As she moves through, the temperature politely adjusts.
Pedestrians scurry along, at first nonplussed,
Then they move on to sipping some hot tea – an absolute must!

The rain, she is the warrior against the steady heat,
Offering solace as she overcomes the summer, to defeat.
She vanishes till the clouds meet,
We realise her value, for bringing her back is quite a feat!

You write @sushantika with some science in mind —the rainbow during the residual downpour, the washing of the town, or the ventilating effect of the wind, all technically the effect of the cause. And do we know that at times of rising temperatures, a hot tea is much better than iced drinks? A poem as scientific, as it is poetic. We learn as well as entertained. Thanks for this.

I awake to the gloom of a cloud covered sky, There’s a dampness that floats with the air. A stillness and peace has enveloped my world, And I don’t see a soul anywhere. You can already smell the rain on
