A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

The Reluctant Rain (As Perceived by The Rambler)


Day, Setting: 24 April, 2015; thunder, lightning, the works; no rain

The Rambler muses:

There is something Godforsaken
Where I’m at
(#1- the nasty personal perspective)

Would you rather
The ripe paddy soaked?
Or the fertilizer sacks
Simply drenched?
(#2- The Practical Personal persona)

Heck! There’s water in our well
And lush green leaves throng
Them plants;
Some other place, most likely
Needs some water- more’n us.
pandering-to-others’-whims wala #3)

Well, whaddya know!
29 drops fell this day! Historic!

(Sarcasm alert #4)

How my heart,
It longs to drench in you!
(It’s the she’ll-never-learn-mushy-romantic #5)

Oh well! Tomorrow is another day!
It’ll rain yet!
(Gosh! A Scarlett O’Hara, nothing less!- #6)


The thunder and lightning played
To the fierce challenge of the winds.
She slept, that rambler,
And dreamt of the obvious.


Day, Setting: 25 April, 2015, a cool dawn

The Rambler is glad to report
This rain-rinsed morn
The Reluctant Rain-maker
Ran out of excuses.

And soaked in the aftermath
Of a memorable night of rain.

Dreams do come true!

  1. Half-a-dozen versions of verse
    She attributed to people diverse
    So intently did she feel
    The gods had to repeal
    Their reluctance and order the dream-clouds to disperse!

  3. At first it made me wonder
    if this was multiple personality disorder
    but then I realized that such thoughts can only be order
    for it is otherwise called sender
    I was waiting for a chance to use the word:)
