The land and the people sighed with relief,
almost as if in unison…
The rains had come… at last.
They pitter-pattered on my windows,
and managed to captivate me with an astounding view.
The flowers were starting to shyly poke their heads out,
The ground was starting to get swallowed up
by the ever growing green expanse,
Umbrellas became a hot commodity,
progressing to a necessity rather than an accessory.
The roads turned wet, muddy and slippery,
Adventure trails marred by water-filled potholes
of all sizes and shapes.
Each passing vehicle splashed so much muddy water,
that you should count yourself lucky
if you managed to get away without a trace of mud!

It’s been a few days since the monsoon arrived here in Kerala but it took me a while to compose this poem! 😉 It’s been raining here every day and I’m pretty sure I’m coming down with a rather nasty cold. But it’s so beautiful (and cold!). And I don’t want the rain to go away! 🙂
P.S: This is my 100th post! Yayyyy. 🎆🎉🎊
