|An Unromantic Downpour|

It has been a long time and is time to be back with my ramblings. Here, I chose to delve into the downpour of various emotions that are invariably concerning the rain.

It drizzles first following the cool breeze or the other way round, one can never predict its arrival. Here, it rained last night without any prior warning – sudden and furious but short lived!

The Dark Clouds
P. C. Ashlin B. J.

It is extremely beautiful and desired for, when it arrives amidst/ succeeding the scorching summer. Here, it meets the needs of nature and its beings and heals the sunburn of the earthly skin.

It is exceedingly fearful and is cursed and doomed, when it is superfluous and unwanted. Here, its beauty may not reflect in the eyes of the witness, as an excess of anything is dull and monotonous.

It is never always romantic as the poet exalts, when it brings about the season of contagious diseases. Here, it paves way to prolonged condition of sickness and morbidity.

When it rains in the sea & the waves meet the droplets

It is mostly a symbol of solitude, when you reminisce the life. Here, it becomes the moment to wash away the cruel past, through the tears, that untimely gets diminished with it.

It is the time for cuddling and breeding with the thrills of thunder and lightning. Here, it acts as a perfect setting for the perfect mood.

It is the time for playing and getting wet resulting in the feeling of freshness within. Here, all those who enjoy the rain leaps outside to upgrade their soul and spirit.

Rain vocalizes itself and who knows what it says?

For me, it brings in a mixture of emotions because the child in me never liked it, as it made me sick, whenever I went out to enjoy it. Whom to blame – the rain or my immunity? There were times I envied those who can fearlessly play in the rain. Doesn’t matter, there occured no much change after growing up, as the darkness and the furious sounds it brings with it, still makes me have an abhorrence for it. No wonder, I am that double minded person when the rain offers the comfort for a tight sleep. May be because the comfort and the cooling it offers for a better sleep, makes me forget its gloomy side. I assure that the rainy day turns me lethargic and lazy and that it is the sunny day that keeps me active throughout. But for being laid back and for rewinding and revisiting own thoughts, rain has helped me a lot. For who doesnot like to take a break and sleep? The rainy day is my day of Break!

  1. I have always been the one to hate rain among my friends and while growing up I thought something was wrong with me for not liking the rain when everyone else around me loved it! Glad to see I’m not alone! 😀

  2. Incredible photos! I love the rain too, although I thrive in sunshine. I like the cosy feel of being home when the rain is pattering at the window. I love how it sounds on the tent roof when you’re camping, not so much the mud the next day 😉

  3. Great post. Growing up in Los Angeles, I didn’t experience the rain often, yet I now live in the Pac Northwest, where it rains a lot. At first, I didn’t like it. Now? Not as bad. Appreciate you sharing your story. Be well. 🙂

  4. What a great way to talk about something as sublime as the rain. I personally love it but I get that idea of seeing that gloomy sky yet feeling comfort before falling asleep, like a spiked veil dressing the night.
