“Ooooohhh…. It’s rainingggg!!!”
I say this as I am in the terrace and watching rain. Billions of raindrops falling from the sky, thrumming on the roof.
I hear kids playing in the rain and singing the monsoon-special songs.
My heart leaps with joy. I feel a deep sense of calm and relief as I close my eyes, open my arms and feel the downpour.
It feels like everything is covered in a green blanket. I feel a cool breeze around that makes me wonder weather I am in heaven! With so much beauty surrounding me..
I can’t believe it’s here!
The season I waited for the whole year!
I cannot help but scream with joy. Does that sound silly? Or maybe childish? I don’t care.. I don’t care about anything when it rains. I just go all in and enjoy the beauty of nature that surrounds me.
I hear cuckoo chirping, somewhere on a tree.. even he must have been waiting eagerly for rain as I.
As I am stand there getting wet, mom calls in so that I don’t catch cold.
As I enter home I am longing for a cup of hot tea and some snacks.
In a while, me and Mom and busy cooking, as we hear the raindrops and smell the petrichor. Cooking feels different today, I am enjoying every single moment.
Sitting by the window with Mom, Dad and my small sister, drinking tea, eating snacks, chatting, laughing, feels like bliss.
As I get up to clean, I realise I’m never ever going to forget these days, where my family was smiling along with rain.
