After the Rain

Let it rain,

so the soil gets a drink,

from the sky’s heavy clouds.


Flowing down terrains,

depriving roots to shrink,

as shoots gladly sprout.

Then the sun shines again,

Coloured sky with nature’s ink,

waving grasses clearly proud.




The rain is a welcome friend to the soil and its occupants. It provides them with the liquid energy to be nourished. It also has a cleansing effect on the environment. Then the sun comes up and brightens everywhere with its light and colours in the sky, with beautiful insects, plants and animals all bursting into activity.


It is a wonderful synergy that cannot be overlooked. Its beauty is awesome. Let’s learn to appreciate it ok.


Warm regards.
