As I sip my coffee
Complaining about the unbearable heat;
A mollifying breeze caressed me
With a secret, silent promise.
I looked outside the window
Grey clouds had embellished the sky;
Will it rain finally?
Will there be a pinch of respite from the heat?
A loud thunder affirmed my words
I immediately pined for some showers;
Soon, the wind was agile
Gracefully taking the form of a thunder storm.
I marveled at the storm
Though there was no rain;
I took delight in the thunder
And the rustic wind that rustled my hair mercilessly.
Finally, my patience paid off
As I heard the chiming sound of drizzles;
The storm slowly ebbed down
As the rain took over it in all its valor.
The aroma of the damp mud
Captivated my senses;
The ambrosial green of the rain-washed plants
Appeased my soul and heart.
After an hour of endless pouring
The rain stopped abruptly;
Leaving behind many happy pluviophiles,
A contented earth and the deep lingering petrichor.
