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.

Locus Classicus


Its April of 2019 and Day 12 of A to Z Challenge. I am doing Foreign word/phrase a day and 8 line poem for it.

Word/Phrase: locus classicus
Language: Latin
Meaning: the best known or most authoritative passage on a subject

the fallen leaves,
the shady dust,
the weak stand,
the fragile cover,
the shoddy path,
the evil thoughts,
natures  locus classicus,
rain, said – wash away!

The rain current can wash away a lot of things. Only a stronger foundation can sustain. The roots are to be grounded firm and strong. (Now that applies to a lot of things!)

The Duty Call

From the Chapters of The Void 

“I do it as I do. You see it as you do.”

 It’s the rain. The way it pours down to the earth. The way it then goes back up to form the clouds. It’s the transformation between that up and down. It’s the play of forms.

 But you see not everyone likes the rain. Not the dogs which have given birth to pups and they are drowning in rain. Not the one who has fallen sick. Not the one who has dressed up well and the plan was to head out. That does not lead to the conclusion that ‘rain isn’t good’.

Is the rain Bad?
Don’t know.
Is the rain good?
Don’t know.

The question is, ‘What does the rain feel?’ That is what matters. Rain is doing its duty. It means, well, you know.

 A void does its duty.  It gives an opportunity. Does it look good or bad?
