Midsummer Showers #writephoto

Hey, This is my first blog post of the new year. Just like last year, I have started off by participating in one of Sue’s Photo prompt! I was mulling over a lot of ideas to write on this photo. But then suddenly found an old piece of poetry that perfectly fits the image. By the way, this poem was composed way back in February 2009! A decade ago…wow! I’m happy I stumbled unto it. 🙂 Hope you guys enjoy.

Midsummer Showers

A hot day dawns
Softly murmuring the breeze yawns
Waking the sleepy birds in the tree boughs
A hot sunny day the sky vows
The crystal blue canopy overhead
With a thin stripes of clouds here and there

Suddenly to a darker shade the clouds run
Parting the grey tries to smile the sun
Dark coolness gulps the last warm ray
As drops of heavenly nectar rush down the way
Down into the embrace of the land
Where new tiny flower sing hand in hand
The world wakes up to a new dream
As the rains colour everything in green

The sweet fragrance of the wet earth is in the air
Finally the sun peeks out, making the rain drops flare
Rays of the golden light stream with colours anew
Leave back fresh lasting memories
Until the monsoons are due……


I love monsoons, isn’t it quite evident? 😛 Well, what’s your favourite season?
