R: Rain

Image Source

The first drop tickles my skin
The sweet petrichor fills me up
I'm watching the scene from my balcony
Book in hand and some tea in a cup

The rain drops seem to play a tune
The wind plays havoc with my hair
I'm busy enjoying the freshness
About nothing for now I care

The plants around me slowly dance
As the rose buds begin to bloom
I see a rainbow hugging the sky
Crafted from God's wonderful loom

Along with rain, comes the memories
Good, bad and everything in between
The wonderful nature paints a picture
More beautiful that anything I've seen

That is the magic of rain
It takes me to another place
A place where everything seems right
A place that gives me ultimate solace

I watch the downpour in awe
How it has cleansed the entire lane
Some come out to enjoy it
Some just watch it from their window pane

The emotion most attached with rain
Is the powerful one called love
The drops make you crave for it
Like a sign that is sent from above

It tugs my heart really tight
I now enjoy this bitter sweet pain
I want to soak myself in it
Let it rain, oh, let it rain
