U - Umbrella

(Pic: Finland, 1968, photo by George F. Mobley )

Its name is synonymous with romance
Makes you forget all your pain
It helps you hide the hurt and tears
This miracle is called rain

It is a blessing from the heavens
With a chime it falls on your window pane
It makes you trace your finger on it
Your inner child comes out with the rain

The gentle paper boat sliding by
Or the massaging effect on your mane
What is there, that's not to like
All that you need, comes with rain

It doesn't let others judge you
Nobody out there can ever complain
It brings out the inner poet in you
That is the magic of this rain

The balloons may end their life
They shall get strewn in every lane
It has the power to jewel them up
Watch the color through a drop of a rain

It sure has passion in every drop
The power of it shall never wane
There is no need of an umbrella
For two lovers in the rain

  1. WOW...:)
    How lovely..:)
    The rains have inspired poets, instigated romance among intimate partners, spread happiness among children and what not. You have truly captured all aspect so beautifully in the poem..:) :) :)

    1. Thank you so much darling! Rains are magical :)

  2. I like how you have portrayed your feelings for the rain. But I don't know why I don't really like rain. I just feel sad whenever it rains. :(

    1. Oopsie! Get wet once, all alone with your eyes closed. You will then love it!

  3. Everything is a blessing when we have love... even a bone-freezing snowstorm. Sweet!
