Rain Rain Go Away...

pitter patter, pitter patter
...drops fall on the ground...
...fragrance of wet earth fillling your lungs!
you feel like you just refreshed a page that cannot be displayed..(kill joy, thats me)
AHA! experience in other words....

you feel a sense of freedom, you feel like lifting your arms up, wide open....Liberation
you wanna fly, with no care in the world...
for, its raining...

I remember, when I was in school, kids used to love the rain cos that would mean, wet ground and no assembly, no monitoring, no long speech, no punishment...

I remember, when I used to return from school, kids used to love getting wet..soaked from head to toe...wet uniform, will catch cold so school ki chutti....far fetched, but hope is a free entity..

I remember, rain always brought with it truck loads of excitement...people rush to their balconies, windows, doors just to get a glimpse of how cluttered drops of water, flushed from above somewhere, look...

Sky spitting like there is no tmrw.....

I remember, in college, the first time we had a heart-to-heart...it rained
we got acquainted in the midst of an unknown, uninterested crowd, showers our only other listener....

Parted ways...it rained...friends used to tell me 'see, even God is crying!'
Football match...it rained...
Final Farewell...last day...it rained....

It poured everytime I wanted to play, everytime I wanted to go out,everytime i wanted to eat ice cream, everytime I wanted to meet someone, everytime I.... everytime I just wanted to be me....

I never liked the rain....it means nothing to me..my life stops for those few seconds, minutes, hours....

why?

why?

Drops of water create slush,muddy-muddy, dirty dirty....
Watching the rain depresses me.....
Talking abt it upsets me...
It bounds me...liberation ends....

why?

I have no idea...

Rain Rain Go Away
come again another day
Little 'me' want to play

Rain Rain Go Away....

Prude said...

I see what you mean...
I love swimming. And by some default everytime I would make a plan to go swimming it would rain....and I couldn't. I hated it then. Sigh. But then it makes everything around you so beautiful...u just have to make your peace.

see the futility in the statement...rain rain go away...
come again another day?
:) What if u'd planned something bigger on the other day?

Tsu said...

For a while, I'd forgotten all about rains and losing myself in the water. Time to renew my association with the rain.

Cosmos said...

Do you know this thing which stops your life for a few sec, min or hour; runs our life. Without rain there is no life just go and ask people who live in Rajasthan without a drop of water for three or four days and sometimes a week.
Any way nice expressions.
Everyone has right to Write after all we live in democracy. :)

@ goli rain and memories are synonymous...some have had wonderful, others dont even wanna remember...

thats the whole point. you see, u can hate the rain, u can like it but can never ignore it. it brings out something so moist from deep inside you, and maybe so noxious as the writer says... it just plays with your emotions like the fickle raindrops falling on the puddle...

The rhythm of it is so dynamic yet so fully monotonous.... thats how it is...
