THE RAIN

The drizzle tempted me
I stepped out in the balcony
To be greeted by the cool night air
The tingling drops tickled my senses
What a delight to be under nature’s spell
Glued to my rocking chair
I watched the remaining night show

The dark clouds resting
The overworked moon and stars
The splashing rain creating
A symphony in the still night
The downpour descending the sloping roofs
Whispering drops sliding from tiny leaves
Ovals glistening in the lamp’s reflection
Each scene a marvel in itself

The soaked earth and showered leaves
Beckoning me to get drenched
The chill on my arms snuggling me closer
To my loved one for comfort and body heat
Hours passed but my eyelids refused to droop
Lest I miss the charm of the bursting clouds
A memorable night of my life.

  6. your poem says it all about the magic, the miracle of 'rain'...what is it about the rain that moves ones emotions so deeply...the best poems are often written while the rain patters at the window...and your imagery and analogies enhance the wonder of the rain even more...i thoroughly enjoyed reading this lovely and sensitively expressed poem...i loved the way your words rained on me...no pun intended!!!
