Rain – The Artist!

In response to iScriblr.com’s Freedom of Expression Challenge #21, for the prompt word “RAIN”

The arid tanned landscape

paints a picture so gloomy,

the languid eyes look up in earnest

at the clear blue skies

waiting to be enveloped by

the dark grey clouds

to shower pearly white drops

washing the dusty brown land anew.

The fresh scent of petrichor

the drops bring in,

paints the earth in hues of green

the aqua waters of the sea swell up,

the crimson petals of flowers

lie scattered on the pavement, satiated

every living soul comes alive

O Rain,

the flora and fauna

rejoices as you shower

your silver elixir!

      Thanks Sifar. Water is a priceless and finite resource. So we should make genuine efforts to conserve it. I hope the rain God blesses us in abundance.

  15. This is one of the poem that says importance of rain, that has written so far on Earth. I am repeating what I told before I am waiting for the day when your poem will come in English books for children.
