Some times all you need is a long path and a breath of fresh air.. !! 😀
Has it ever happened to you.. ?? Out of no where you miss something that was once too much.. too obvious.. and too present to miss..??
So while I was tossing and turning on the bed last night.. I was hearing a light tapping on my bedroom window.. I could hear the heavy wind making a roaring sound.. the light tapping was the rain drops..!!! This very thing was something that made me so happy growing up .. as heavy rains meant there’s no school tomorrow… !! (something like a snow day here) …I go to bed with a smile on my face.. 😀
Now where I live rain is not so common.. rarely you hear the raindrops and the wind somehow is of the abundance….Sometimes the small car I drive really feels this wind.. meaning I can’t really go light on the steering wheel without wind trying to blow away my car along with me in it.. ok now that’s too much of an exaggeration… But the point is wind is often heavy.. but the light rain that wash away the weary of long lasting hot summer days or almost ending cold winters.. is a rare occurrence .. !!
Last night with the calming sound of the raindrops .. I was half way down the memory lane until I don’t remember anymore.. I must have fallen asleep… !
I started my school on a rainy day.. I was happy to wear my new rain coat that my dad got me for the first day of school.. other kids had umbrellas .. I liked how I was the only one in a rain coat so bright and yellow.. !! Although school has always given me chills even before I stepped foot in there.. the walk to school was always a fun one.. !! We were careful to ignore the puddles..and so quick to go to the side when a car passed through splashing all of us.. the fact that our school uniform was white .. didn’t help at all.. on a rainy day..!!
Some how the school sports meet was always on the hottest months of the year.. February..!! We only wished for rain which never came.. as for hours we were out in the burning sun for various sports events.. !! Although the first poem I ever learned for English was “Rain Rain Go Away” this didn’t really make much sense on these sports days.. !! ..
Some how my memories, my life back home was so connected with rain.. now hearing the mere sound of rain drops alone gives me teary eyes with a gutt wrenching feeling of nostalgia.. Ohh the good old days..!!
I miss the rain..!!
As the year goes by……….
The sunless winters brings out the worst of your moods.. as months pass and spring arrives through the cold breeze.. so does the mood it peeks out through the gloominess.. the sunny summers continue to improve… while around fall things get transitional.. good but bad.. clear but blurry.. past months of the year and the future months of next year to come.. regrets and some achievements.. cold but warm weather.. confusion of lost chances or gained experiences.. then its time for the new years to starts.. through the darkness you hope.. hope for the summery warmth yet to come..!! Life goes on like wheel that turns continuously..
Right now.. as April arrives.. I see glimpse of hope.. budding through the darkness … I hope for a warm heart felt summer.. full of memories.. created and missed towards the end of the year.. I’m feeling hopeful..!!
So now that I have started blogging again I get to read loads of blog posts. Some are mind blowing and I’m amazed by how good people can write. Lately I started reading some poem blogs and decided to have a crack at it. Here is what I came up with.. its called “Color Your Season”. It may sound like a kid wrote it.. but oh well.. here it goes.. 😛
Please give me your comments and suggestions as I truly believe that all my fellow bloggers out there can give me all the inspiration, encouragement and guidance that I need. 😀
I have a color for each season..
where I live its the Winter now .. things tend to feel so grey…. !!
But sometimes Winter likes to play games with your mind.. some days are unusually warm.. no way..!!
Like yesterday it was 10 degrees C… despite the huge snow banks you see
for a minute you do believe its the start of Spring..!!
Can’t wait for the grey to be over.. I want my green – spring and yellow – summer and orange – fall to come..!!
The Fall feeling is a nice but a short one.. !! It comes too fast and leaves too fast..
