Summer Rain

The summer rain showers
the joy of spring
stimulates the lost sense
of earthen scent.

The heaven comes down
in form of rain
transforms the landscape
into pretty green and clean.

The ambiance becomes cool
being soaked in rain
a pleasure for certain
perhaps quite trouble others.

The rain rejuvenates
while watched through the backyard
recollects the memories of childhood
in the pitter-patter background.

The raindrops splash
refreshment when summer squashes
a transformation in wetness
that quite falls outside the structure.

The rain looks heavy and it is a dark looking photo because it is overcast. I don't know if you have monsoon where you live but I guess it must be that time of year for you. I really like the photo and the writing too.

Hi Jeevan,

Visiting you from Blogaton.
Your writing style is very different. I like the way your poem begins with the onset of Monsoon and it ends on..getting everyone drenched.

Beautiful poem.
