The thing to do when it rains, is to let it rain.

I am hungry for more rains in-spite of the generous showers we have had recently. I cant seem to get enough of looking at water pouring on me from nowhere. So on today's unimaginably hot weather I went into my stock of rainy memories and came up with some rainy thoughts.

***************************
Some mirrors created
from puddles of water collected
Why is it showing me my reflection?
Is it time for some introspection?

***************************

The little drop
on the green leaf
beside a pink flower
on the lovely lawn
slips sleekly down
moving to another leaf
slightly smaller than the former
perhaps for the better

***************************

The moon looks perfectly done
only in the distant pool of water
just like the love that seems perfect
only because it never happens

***************************
The bubbly blue butterfly
kisses the leaf and turns shy
making the leaf glow so much greener
an honest kiss and its untold power.

***************************
I wish it rains now,
Gargi

You inspired me to write my own poem. Here goes:

The rain looks so beautiful,
When seen lying on your bed;
But 'tis not so much fun
When it is pouring on your head.

:P
