Pre monsoon clouds
Have started to gather
And my heart
And my soul
Longing to hear
The sound of
Falling rain drops
And the rustling
Of the leaves.
And the divine
Fragrance and the
Of Mother Earth
As the first drops fall
On its thirsty breast.
Sky and the earth
And I am in love
With the monsoon
And whole of life …

Thank you so much Dawn. May you keep spreading His love and joy in all hearts.
Incidentally we have just reached Delhi – 45 degrees 😜 and it is raining in Pune 31 degrees
Haha! Yeah! I agree!😂😂
Delhi rains aren’t as exciting 😜 as in Pune or even Mumbai ☔️ was in Delhi for 12 years
Oh! I see! I live in Delhi!🙂
Thank you so much my friend. Appreciate it
You have some spectacular photos. An excellent poetry. Much feeling Well for your inspiration.
Thank you so much. Yes, Indian economy depends so much on good monsoon
Ashok, I am certain many are praying for a significant monsoon season. As always, your photography is amazing!
I thrive to keep it close to my heart and soul every day!🙏💕
Just enjoy them😊 The reason doesn’t matter.
Thank you for the visit Florence
Nice poem. I feel good when I see such cloud. Don’t know why.
Thank you so much Sohanpreet
Refreshing words and pictures😊
I have never been to Scotland but know it is very beautiful. God willing one day.
And I visited UK long long back. God willing soon again 😊🙏
My absolute pleasure 💙
That is so sweet Vee. I do write many things hoping you will read them 😊
I so wish that you lead an abundant life.
It can get pretty rainy in the u.k., but nothing, I suspect, like where you are. I love thunder and lightning storms which we get occasionally. I live in England now but was brought up in Scotland where the rain is much heavier. ☺
Thank you so much Sid
So that I can know how much and the quality of rain you get 😊
Thank you so much Elle. How are rains where you live ?
Wonderful photos and a beautifully uplifting atmospheric poem. I love rain!
Yeah sure! You too!🙂
Beautiful words just like the pleasant rain 💙💙💙
Oh, I know. I really do. I just like that people, like me, are liking the things you’ve got to say. ❤
Thank you so much Kamal.
Awesome pictures of early monsoon clouds, Ashok and such a wonderful poem. Rains that make the earth wet and even their breeze makes us feel so warm and nice.
As I had said once earlier too Vee, you shall always remain very special for me : The first blogger to comment on my posts 🤗
Thank you so much Gauri. Enjoy the rains. May I know where do you live ?
Oh yes. Thank you so much my friend
Beautiful the rains so quenching Mother Earth’s thirst to refresh and replenishing her being. Rains cleanse the physical and spiritual. May you have a blessed Monsoon
True! Monsoon is a gift from god. Nothing brings more joy to the heart than the sweet sound of falling rain drops! Nice pictures! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
But you know I was very happy when I got ten follows and ten likes 😊
Oh yes Vee. I love people and love to share my life experiences.
Thank you 🤗
It is a number, but it isn’t a number. It’s 200 people, like minded or individually minded, friends. 200 Friends who’ve thought ‘My, he seems like he’s got something to say that I can appreciate. Something that I resonate with. Something that I want to see more of. 200 friends, who appreciate your thoughts. As much as it’s a number, it’s also a connection.
Thank you so much Sonia. That is the beauty of nature. Peaceful and yet joyous. I am sure you have that joy and peace within you 🤗
Awe! Beautiful poem and photos! So peaceful, and yet full of joy!👌👏❤️
Thank you Vee. It is just a number isn’t it? I need to see how many can I manage 😊
God be with you in all that you do
Some places do get adversely affected V but generally it is great. I love it. And as I have said earlier too – you are always welcome here in any season 😊🤗
That is so sweet Swapnal. You are such a divinely receptive young lady. And I am looking forward to August 🤗
Thank you Jyot. Yes that first rain smell is divine
That sounds good Liz
Thank you so much my friend
Thank you so very much. Appreciate it
Thank you Madhuri. There are some beautiful rain songs in Hindi too 😊
श्रावणात घन निळा बरसला, रिमझिम रेशीम धारा…..
उलगडला झाडातून अवचित हिरवा मोरपिसारा….
श्रावणात घन निळा बरसला…….
रिमझिम रेशीम धारा…..
उलगडला झाडातून अवचित हिरवा मोरपिसारा….
I am in awe of the poem and beautiful photographs. Thank you
How lovely…the photos are so beautiful that they join the poet in telling the story.
PS – I also noticed you broke the 200 followers number. Congratulations!
I’ve always been curious about what monsoon season is like. I hear/see crazy stories on the news, but is it really as crazy as western media paints it out to be? I presume living in India you deal with it annually, so you’re probably used to it by now?
I think it would be really cool to experience.
Wooooooow im just in love of ur poems uncle….and pics too…its sooo soulful that i dont just read and see it but very deeply i feel it…with some unexplained joy pouring out from within…im happy that my baby will open eyes in this soothing monsoon season in August😄
It’s really magnificent!!
The rains in New England tend to be fairly gentle. They bring out the smell of pine, hemlock, and leafmold.
Miss that lovely mitti smell 🙂, and monsoons rain. Enjoy Ashokji! And beautiful pictures.
Thank you Liz. How are rains in your part of the world?
I love this celebration of a season!
Thank you Lynette.
Thank you Samyak. Good to see you are up early to enjoy the clouds ⛅️ 😊
Rejoicing in the downpour with the frisky clouds!
Beautiful photos. 🙂
ON TRUE TRANSFORMATION AND REDISCOVERING THE PURITY OF OUR CHILDLIKE STATE
◇ My Diamond Hard Experience and Instinct Suggests that there ARE Two Ways to Approach the Living of 3DLife; these ARE:
♧ 1. Wants + Demands = Highs and Lows 😔
♡ 2. Hope + Desire = Acceptance and Pleasant Surprises 😀
◇ Do You CHOOSE!!! 1 or 2 EveryOne; Balance, 2 or InStability, 1 or, perhaps, a combination of both 🤔 ?
Understand that Ladies ARE Only Good for Three Things:
♡ Soulful Connection
♡ Psychological Synchronicity (especially when in PERCEIVED CONFLICT!!! 🤔 )
♡ Sexual Compatibility
…now I Accept that this a Short, Simple yet Complex Checklist; yet it is a Short List unlike My Exes Reams and Reams and Reams et al of Their Conditions, especially for Separation and Divorce, while Claiming to Love Me Totally and UnConditionally 😆😅😄😃😂😁😀😉😊
♧ DAT – Diversity Acceptance Tolerance
◇ TAP – THINK!!! Analyse Process
♤ PAT – Passion Aptitude Temperance
…and, of course, PPS (Peace Patience Solitude); it’s Crystal Clear Clarity that I Suggest stay In STEP (Serenity Tranquility Equilibria Placidity) and PAT YourSelf on The Back when NoOne Else Seems to Be Doing So…
♡ Sanity and Sensory
To me it makes perfect sense
I’m unable to explain the sense
I slowly make sense of the sense
Makes sense to me
Making sense of it all
May make sense to you too
Let’s Wait ‘n’ see
Compromise or Agree-To-Disagree
Yes..it will be a good monsoon from what i can tell..😁
