The Pluviophile

musings

Pluviophile: a lover of rain;someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days

I love the rain, clichéd though it might sound

The sound of raindrops falling on the ground

Dotting my windowpane, following a rhythm of their own

Keeping me company as I sit indoors alone

It’s not that getting soaked in rain I appreciate

Nor is splashing in puddles appealing, I must state

But curling up with a book and some hot tea

On my couch by the window seems heavenly

When it rains outside I have an excuse perfect

To procrastinate on errands, no one would expect

Me to drive around town braving the roads slick

And traffic snarls- the thought makes me sick

Rainy days provide an ideal ambience

For conjuring up poetry saturated with romance..

Rainy days thus give me the time and space

That I crave in my life that runs at a fast pace..
