My rain

People sing you are my sunshine,

I say you are my rain.

The dry, patched earth waits

Just like I yearn for you.

The song-bird awaits

Just like I ache for you.

The monsoon arrives.

The earth rejoices,

The water from heaven

Freeing her from bonds unknown,

Takes her to a place

She has only dreamt of.

The song-bird sings

Of pleasures only she knows,

Her love is back

To fulfill every desire, her every wish.

The tree reborn,

Her life is new,

Nothing like she ever knew.

Nothing has changed.

Nothing is the same.

One day, I’m sure,

You’ll come too.

One day, I’m sure

I feel like them too.

One day, I’m sure,

You’ll be here to stay.

And like the rain,

You will not ever leave.

One day, I’m sure.



At the Lounge, we are having a story writing contest around the theme of rain.(For details,click here). So lately, my thoughts have centred aroung the theme of rain. The rain means so much for so many people which is very evident for the varied perspectives, I have read there. I too have written some stuff there for the contest and otherwise which you can read here

As about my this poem, I was in middle of a really boring chapter when I thought of this. I guess I should really start studying if it gives me inspiration for more poems :)

Uff this post has too many links to be given out.

Rash, not so much with the Ram, but my own thoughts. Therefore this poem has made a dent, and something rattles. I like it much much.
