I watch the fat raindrops fall

gently they sit there bubble like

on a pool of water

their ephemeral irridescence mesmerising

and then they are gone

as I sit ensconced inside

the warmth of my abode

the transience of raindrops

a case of learning for me;

to shine in the limited time I have.

  2. This is just beautiful, Punam. There is something about raindrops that draws us in and they are, indeed, a great representation of the brevity of life. We should all live like raindrops.

  3. Sigh, I wrote a long comment and it appears not to have gone through. As usual, I love this Wonderfully crafted, Punam.

      1. I used your “fat raindrops” in a poem I’ve just written, I’ll post It in the morning ..
        “Fat rain drops have forgotten their landing spots”

  4. Love the layers of meaning, the transience of life… the importance of shining in the moment that we have.

    and then they are gone

      1. I was just reading previous comments and saw I commented previously, back in March!! This makes me so happy to know I’ve been reading your poetry for this long. I had written:
        β€œThis style of besutuful writing with a beautiful profound message feels like your signature to me. You seem to do it effortlessly.”

        I stand by that all these months later! ❀️❀️
