There is a belief that rain falls when good happens on Earth. When something nice, something benefiting happens it is our belief that rain will always come before or after celebrating the event with us. When the rains come on time and in plenty, the rivers flow, the crops grow, and there is magnanimity all around. This is my attempt at linking rains to good things in life.
Tears of happiness started flowing
From the happy Gods ruling the heavens above
When they see a good deed
Being performed on mother Earth.
Benedictions start flowing
Into rivers, rivulets and streams
Washing away the selfishness
The mean things we do without meaning to.
Blessings multiply when the seeds sprout
Growing strong and long
Rolling carpets of greens and browns
Filling the bounties at home and heart.
Sound of rain is the background music
Of the show Mother Nature displays
Thunders and lightening adding
The unexpected dramatic twists.
Let us all be more generous
More giving and more loving
So that the Gods above
Bestow us with the tears of happiness.
