On a Wet July Morn

It had rained all night
And drenched the land outright
Leaving puddles and pools,
Here, there and everywhere.
But the morning saw
The sun blazing ever more bright.

I watched the water
Flowing silently away
With no ostentation
Along channels, furrows and waterways
Cavities, crevices and culverts
And through ditches and drains.
What little remained,
Seeped down unnoticed
Through innumerable pores unseen.

As prisoners from narrow cells
Suddenly released into boundless space
Or troops from a garrison
On a spurt of fresh attack
The children shut indoors
Came out in gangs
To romp, jump and play.
Unmindful of anything,
They soon lost in a wave of giggles.

But how sudden was the change!
The sky over cast with dark clouds
Fired out like a water cannon.
Once more the rain,
Cascaded down with greater vengeance
Each drop weighing gallons
And the silver needles pricking deep
Making the children flee
In directions all round
Like autumn leaves
Scattered by the wind!

The rain continued to pour
Inundating the low lying lands

Oh! Mother Nature
How erratic are your moods
How unpredictable
How like a child throwing tantrums
And how quickly appeased!

    A lovely poem and homage to nature and her moods and seasons. The first 2 stanzas were my favourite for imagery and tight rhyming scheme.

  • Valerie Dohren (6/22/2013 5:38:00 PM)

  • Dinesh Nair (6/22/2013 10:47:00 AM)

    Let the moods of the unpredictable nature entice us
    And let these lines pour in the threads of a rain very dear....

    Where poetry is the music of hope,
    You may sing it madam, Valsa...

    We know the reward of sin is death.Every action has its equal and opposite reaction(Cause and effect) catastrophe on land and the Sea is made by human hands, tells Qur'an.No proper covering by vegetation on high lands and no better drainage system in cities which make flood. Good narration of the day.
