The Bliss Under the Whisper of the Rain

02 Apr

No need looking for a shelter 
The nature’s giving you a kiss 
Wait for the end of pelter 
Feel in the rain the pure bliss.  

No need for getting quite wet 
Settle on an edge of waterwall 
Don’t be afraid of wind’s onset 
Enjoy that voice of rainfall. 

                                                                                                      No need for any fleeting thoughts 
                                                                                                         Just free your mind along with this   
                                                                                                     Forget all that annoying oughts 
                                                                                                    Feel in the rain the pure bliss.

    Beautiful poem!
    I love to shower in the rain. Thankfully I live a ways away from other people in my Tiny House, so I don’t cause too much chaos. One smells heavenly after a rain shower. Cool and light. It is a wondrous thing.
    The rain is blissful, you are right.

    lovely. I remember feeling like this about rain as a child. It seemed special. Now we all just snipe about the inconvenience and rush to cover.

    I’m a new fan Guy! Elegant…I can almost feel the rain. It truly is amazing that poetry distils experiences down to its “pure” essence allowing those who appreciate it to unwrap it for hours.
    Don’t stop!

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoyed reading your poem. I found some of the language construct quite unusual – is English your first language? (Apologies if it is rude to ask, I’m just intrigued by the unusual rhythms in your choice of words). My favourite phrase is ‘annoying oughts’.

    Your beautiful poem reminded me of moments of pure bliss as I was gardening in gentle Spring and Summer rains. Many thanks! Poetry is the highest evolution of communication in written and spoken languages. I’m truly delighted that we are able to speak this Language of languages. I’m looking forward to reading more…Shelley

    The first two lines,
    “No need looking for a shelter

    is the thought I’ve been trying to form of rain for years.

    it’s almost like the place where i always want to be
    the place that is quiet with only the sound of the falls
    where there are birds chirping around and the breeze making sounds
    the pitter patter of the rain drops and the leaves entangled
    where i can spread my arms without being scared
    and soak myself for as long as i am there
    i wish the place somewhere exists,
    it probably does for i nurture it whenever i sleep….

    like what you thought when you wrote your poem.

    Guy, thanks for stoppin by and checking out my site…it is often how I find new authors I like….this poem already has a lot of comments but if I could, let me add my two cents…very nice nature based poem, language, word choice, supportive of the “feel” of the poem, rhythm of the poem is set up nicely…through most of the poem…If ya’ don’t mind me playin editor (a postion I held for a poetry magazine some years back now) fer a bit though…fer me I would drop the second “the” in the last line from the first and last stanza

    “Feel in the rain the pure bliss” to “Feel in the rain pure bliss” I think this helps maintain the flow, rhythm of the poem

    Secondarily I would trim the last Stanza

    No need for any fleeting thoughts
    Just free your mind along with this
    Forget all that annoying oughts
    Feel in the rain the pure bliss.

    No need for fleeting thoughts
    Just free your mind with this
    Forget all the annoying oughts
    Feel in the rain pure bliss.

    I feel this carries the rhythm of the poem, started in the first Stanza, more smoothly through to the end. Don’t get me wrong…I think this is a solid beautiful poem, hope ya don’t mind me pokin at it…lol…jes ignore me if ya don’t like the suggestions
    Thanks again
