Rain Ho!


Having found this beautiful rainy day picture on web, I have given different perspectives and forms through numerous poetry versions.

Form 01: Haiku

shirtless or well dressed
rain treats you equally same
fair dark brown or black

Form 02: Limerick

Amidst the water and sky,
When you aim high,
Take a jump,
Splash, thump,
No matter four or five.

Form 03: Acrostic on the word PLAY

Pours out loud,
Losing over tracks,
And we jump,
Yay in the rain.

Form 04: Alliteration

Rush, roam, run,
Rumble on the roads,
Roll, ring, rag,
Rackle in the rain.

Form 05: Concrete Poetry and Enjambment

Form 06: Epistrophe

You have money, still you cry,
You have home, still you cry,
You have food, still you cry,

We don’t have any,
In the rain we dance.

      • I only say that because I have some practice in writing limericks. Here’s a quick guide to how many syllables to have in each line to give it the limerick rhythm.
        (I hope you don’t mind) –

        “A limerick is a humorous poem consisting of five lines. The first, second, and fifth lines must have seven to ten syllables while rhyming and having the same verbal rhythm. The third and fourth lines should only have five to seven syllables; they too must rhyme with each other and have the same rhythm.”

        Your work was lovely though. 😀
