It Just Stopped Raining

All that remain
Are a few drops on my window
Of nature’s furious dance

The grey recedes
And white emerges
In a graceful arc

I watch in glee
A giant kaleidoscope
Turn by itself

P.S> From my very same office I mentioned here. Make do with these inept descriptions till I bring my camera around.

Hi your blog is good. Can you blogroll me.Visit me at www.averickshaunt.blogspot.com

Far from inept; sometimes word do a justice that photographs cannot. And sometimes it is vice-versa also.

"A giant kaleidoscope

Thats a really nice touch :)...
And sometimes words do more than pictures...

ps: Line 6 typo, should be 'a graceful'...

@Sriram: Thanks. I don't update my blogroll often. I think there are other avenues you can seek to increase blog visibility.

@Vi: Thanks, maybe I won't take a photograph after all :-)

@Frissko: Thanks for the catch. Blog updated.

i would still like to see a photo.:)..wondered why this nature's show creates glee every time, no matter how repetitive this phenomenon is?

well said (as always) Parth!

You may be talking about rain drops of America but the verse reminds me of the Indian monsoons & makes me want to eat some hot pakodas with tea :)

Nice. I would love to see the pics!

[ps: I may be visting your city some time later this year]

Parth said...

@Pallavi: I think the show is never the same. No two showers are the same, no two sunsets look the same.

@Radha: Now you have made me want some :-)

@SD: Excellent, we'll get to meet after eight years. Please do keep me posted.

I liked the way you used a sentence for a title - very Gulzar :)

Lotus Reads said...

Your poetry is so beautiful and evokes such wonderful images that I don't miss pictures, truly.

Parth said...

@RTD2: Those titles would sound great in Hindi especially

@Lotus Reads: Thanks :-)
