Rain

Rain short poem

Rain ……

Sometimes dark and heavy,

Sometimes light and lively,

Lashing downpours and violent streaks of light,

Pearls on the foliage and the sweet smell of wet earth,

Ambrosia for a parched land,

Opiate for the lonely soul,

Rain …….Oh, how it always reminds me of you!

I love watching the rain!

On winter mornings –

– A honeymoon in the hills,

From the warm comfort of our bed,

Watching the gentle drizzle,

Thru’ large French windows,

Lush green vistas in the distance,

The feel of her soft skin on mine,

The sweet caress of her lips,

Whisperings of sweet nothings…..

I love it after the rains!

Clear skies and the kiss of a lazy wind

The air cleansed and pure

The trees and the grass, laden with moisture,

The houses, the roads and the verdure

Everything around, washed and resplendent

Their colours richer, a shade brighter than before.

Birds sit in pairs

Chirping and preening at each other

Like happy, indulgent couples

Blissfully soaking in the freshness around

Times when I wish we were together……

Oh, how I love to be out after the rains!

To walk around or maybe bike the town,

Down delightfully cold and wind-swept roads,

Ice cream and spice and bright city lights,

Campfires and late-night rides,

Happy couples romancing in the twilight,

And maybe a cozy corner, with the moon full and high,

Just the two of us and no one else in sight!

The Lovely Rain

The Lovely Rain long poem

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

After The Rain

After The Rain short poem

After the rain Luminescent clouds made creative shapes, Appearing out of nowhere, A magnificent double rainbow, Natures twins, Sent from the Heavens, Nature’s finest work, The colors were bright and in every shade you can imagine, Shining high in the
