Hello Monsoon !!

Monsoon, The Season of Love <3
Monsoon, The Season of Love ❤

Hello Monsoon,
The season of love,
The reason to fall in love..

Droplets of rain,
And colourful rainbows,
Like manna from heaven,
Descend on earth..

The peacock flutters and dances,
Birds rejoice and sing,
Trees become a shade greener,
Swaying with the wind..

Raincoats and umbrellas,
Colours filled on the concrete streets,
Some seek for shelter,
While some choose to dance..

Let’s sing a song and walk in the rain,
Go sailing paper boats today,
Stand under a shelter and enjoy hot tea,
Open the window, let’s feel the rain drops splatter in our palm..

Leaving behind the worries of the world,
Get down from the car,
Let’s dance in the rain..

Monsoon has officially set in Mumbai. And oh boy ! Everything around is so picturesque – blossoming flowers, green leaves swaying in the air, drops of water falling on my palm. It all seems magical and so awesome.. And to top it, I had a walk back home from my office instead of taking an auto. It was one of the nicest feeling, walking in the rain, getting slightly wet in the gentle downpour, walking through puddles of water…

So, after a looonggg looong time, say infinity, I took out my sketchbook and painted a quick monsoon scene. The painting is titled : Monsoon, The Season of Love

Okay, so it’s finally 12 AM !! Hence officially a new day, so that I can keep up with the 5 day Photo challenge my friend Rob of The V-Pub invited me to. Rob’s blogs are so humorous and insightful, that they never fail to bring a smile on my face. Please visit his blog anytime you feel too stressed out about life 🙂 Today, is my third day of the challenge.

Today, I nominate Stacily, my newest friend in blogosphere to take this challenge. The rules are as follows:

“Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

  3. Heyyyyyyyyyyy! Yes, of course I accept. How could I not? I already did this challenge, but I’ll give my try at it again. I think I’ll mix it together with another challenge I was nominated for (which, by the way, I will be nominating you for too 🙂 )
    I love the in your poem, the idea of the colors dancing. Wonderful imagery there. And sweet sweet sweet painting. I’m almost finished a painting myself. Maybe I’ll use it in this challenge. Hmmmmm, I’m going to be thinking about this tonight and get the creative juices flowing. WooHoo!
    By the way, I’ve been to India twice. I was there back in 2000, in Calcutta, Darjeeling and Pedong (with a quick pass through Siliguri). Then I lived in Jaipur for almost three months in 2008. My hubby was doing some media course there. I would love to visit India again sometime in the future. Who know? Maybe one day.
    Thanks for the invite Himali. It might take me a few days to start, but I’ll get to it ok.
