A Rainy Day


To-day it is raining without any break
as if flood has come in sky
so overthrowing all water
breaking its dam

A rainy day is a day
of full relax and enjoyment
with deliciousness of self cooked dishes
and a cup of coffee or tea

The young couple may be enjoying
the thundering cloud
palpitation of heart must be increasing
intending to quench thirst of life
so, the cloud is getting dark
to view the wanton look of couple

Children are enjoying the rainy day
as they are free from study
making paper boat to sail down the lane

Baby child is also trying
to catch the rain drop
spreading his little palm out of window

The old couple is also sitting in the courtyard
remembering those days when they enjoyed
the rainy day under one umbrella
half they drenched, half they embraced

A rainy is the day
of full rest and enjoyment

Begone! all anxieties of life and
let me enjoy the rainy day of my life.

    A rainy day idiomatically is used for days which are not very good but the poet bravely enjoys it. That, s great. (Report) Reply

    I laughed when I read this. I could see all of the scenes that you described. It is a delightful poem. I especially like this:
    ...The old couple is also sitting in the courtyard
    remembering those days when they enjoyed
    the rainy day under one umbrella
    half they drenched, half they embraced...

    Thanks for reading Morning Coffee. (Report) Reply

    Regarding the last stanza, I agree with your opinion, but the anxieties are the nuisance and how to get rid of it, particularly during the rainy days of life! I have seen many people who have prepared for the rainy days, manage to sustain those hard days.. Good advice, Brother RR.. (Report) Reply

    In tropical region, it rains almost everyday. so we have to keep the umbrellas ready, otherwise we will be wet. Indian rainy days are completely different, it rains cats and dogs for many days and we used to get holidays if the town is flooded. Thank you Brother RR for sharing this beautiful poem.
