Rain rain come again?


Rain rain come again?

After the sun makes everything way too dry,
we crave for drops which will fall from the sky,
and fill our hearts with vigour and joy,
soon enough, the monsoon does come by.

Then its time for jalebi, pakodas, tea and coffee,
not to miss the the love birds that roam the locality,
or the pleasant weather with breezy velocity,
which engulfes the city with scenic beauty.

So far so good, but then the troubles begin,
water logged roads, jams and drenched skin,
to be followed with a lot of sneezing and coughing,
and conked off phones which suddenly stop ringing.

To love it or not is entirely your say,
after all, things are balanced both the ways,
all i can think of is "rain rain go away,
come again another day, little Johnny wants to play"

TJ said...

Nicely written! I love the way how it begins with a longing for something and when you finally get it...you want it to go away. Yeah the human behavior can be whimsical sometimes hehe!

Prateek Shah said...

Hey thanks a lot TJ! Yes human behaviour surely is whimsical :)

Kiran said...

You are good at putting everything at one place with all the required expressions and things.
I too wait for the rains when m in office but as soon as I get out I use the same phrase "come again another day.." ;)
Good Work sir. :)

Meira said...

"rain rain, come again.
whoever asked you to go after just one day " :P

Oh..I've moved from emgisempire.blogspot.com to happyhoursbeginhere.wordpress.com

Ankush said...

Simple, and elegant. Poetry is a rare talent, my friend. Wouldn't say you're there yet, but you have done a better job than most of the self-proclaimed poets strewn across the Internet.

Prateek Shah said...

@ Ismeet - You are one of the best sisters one can have, who never forgets to comment on any blog post posted by her brother :) Thanks Neeti! Yes, a lot of people think similarly, the moment they step out!

@ Meira - haha, well thats another way to look at it as well :) and thanks for updating me about your blog.. shall have a look right away

Prateek Shah said...

@ Ankush - Well what do i say to that Sir :) Really glad to know that :) And this just happened, i mean i was writing a simple blog post, and it turned into a poem. And no no, i am not even aiming to go that far to turn a poet, as you said, its a rare talent :)

alka said...

Richa said...

Very nice description of Rain Prateek.....It gives me a feeling as if I am standing in a rain and experiencing those beautiful, chilling, small drops of rain and enjoying the blend of soothing music coming out from small creatures all around us.
Also, good to see your shift from Prose to Poetry...Keep writing :)

poorni said...

Prateek ..Your rain poem is too good...very nicely written....keep going.

Hope Delhi has started seeing rain which has provoked your thoughts ....Possible try sending some rain down south .....Chennai is still hot:)

Shas said...

A mere 15minute of rainfall can create a mess and traffic jams on the Delhi roads. Despite that i love the rains. Pakodas and chai make it even more special and enjoyable.

Prateek Shah said...

@ Shas - well rains are like that. You may love them or hate them, but you cant avoid them :)
