Sullen clouds are gathering fast over the black fringe of the
O child, do not go out!
The palm trees in a row by the lake are smiting their heads
against the dismal sky; the crows with their dragged wings are
silent on the tamarind branches, and the eastern bank of the river
is haunted by a deepening gloom.
Our cow is lowing loud, ties at the fence.
O child, wait here till I bring her into the stall.
Men have crowded into the flooded field to catch the fishes
as they escape from the overflowing ponds; the rain-water is
running in rills through the narrow lanes like a laughing boy who
has run away from his mother to tease her.
Listen, someone is shouting for the boatman at the ford.
O child, the daylight is dim, and the crossing at the ferry
The sky seems to ride fast upon the madly rushing rain; the
water in the river is loud and impatient; women have hastened home
early from the Ganges with their filled pitchers.
The evening lamps must be made ready.
O child, do not go out!
The road to the market is desolate, the lane to the river is
slippery. The wind is roaring and struggling among the bamboo
branches like a wild beast tangled in a net.
Rain outside-Showers inside my mind
A slight rain comes, bathed in dawn light.
I hear it among treetop leaves before mist
Arrives. Soon it sprinkles the soil and,
Windblown, follows clouds away. Deepened
Colors grace thatch homes for a moment.
Flocks and herds of things wild glisten
Faintly. Then the scent of musk opens across
Half a mountain — and lingers on past noon.

Rain ! Rain ! Rain !
This monsoon seems to be a blissful one with the Sky and Earth Celebrating to the Maximum.
Sun is always behind the veil of Clouds and showers.
Today is Vyasa Poornima too.
Body, mind & soul is cool….!
Sound of the falling drops of rains.
Things that can never be explained, only experienced. Rain is the best example.
The dim day light, whole atmosphere with particles of rain drops…. The greenary washed and looking afresh…
sound of the rain
Melody of rainining..
Symphony happening while it’s raining..
For a while we think rain has went away, and before the thought fades out, agin it showers….

Fragrance of drenched soil. Greeny surroundings. monsoon worms and insects courageously come out.
All sleeps are washed away by these showers ‘!
