On a rainy day

Rainy day

The clouds in the sky,

Dark and grey,

Gather together,

Heralding another rainy day.


The trees once dry,

Now all green,

Begin to sway,

Making it a pretty scene.


I smell the petrichor,

As the wind begins to blow.

The troubles on my mind,

I begin to let go!


And pitter-patter,

It begins to fall.

First gently,

And then it gives its all.


I sit by the window,

Mesmerized at the sight.

For it has always,

Made me feel alright.


For in troubled times like these,

In little things,

I find peace.

I keep reminding myself,

That the bad times,

Shall also cease!


This was a picture I clicked last year around this time. Google reminded me of it. The monsoon in the country side is such a pretty sight, isn’t it? I miss the outdoors especially sights such as this. Just praying that things get better. Until then, stay at home as much as possible and stay safe. Take care!

Linking up with Esha and Natasha for Wordless Wednesday.

The rains always seem to inspire me to write. Here is post that I wrote some time ago – When it rains

    That’s your serene sanctuary, Reema right? Re: my post. 🙂

    Lovely lyrical lines and such a calming sight.

    Is this taken somewhere near Coorg? I was transported to this world for a fraction of second. Ah! Bliss.

    Thank you for this wondrous post for #WW especially when we wait for the rains to break out in our part of the world. The nimbus clouds have been playing hid and seek the last three days. Hopefully tonight. 🙂

    • Oh yes, this is my serene sanctuary! I just love being surrounded by nature. This picture was clicked in a village in Udupi at Josly’s house there.

      Hope the rains have arrived at your place.

    I’m so glad this year is getting more rain here in the Pacific Northwest to help slow down summer fires. – Margy

  7. You have penned a beautiful poem on it…… wow!

    The photo shared is so apt ……. clean & fresh nature after a shower with all shades of green.

    Happy Monsoon Reema
