    • Dear Ajaeya,
      I am intrigued by your poem because the way you phrase your words leads to a joyful feeling. It is a if I can almost feel the rain on my face as well. One thing you said that stands out for me is: “..they run away into/ grates where they dissapear..”. I think this is interesting because of the way you personifyed the rain drops.

They begged and begged to go outside in the rain. So, we ran out into the rain, ran up and down the street in circles laughing as the rain poured down our faces. I believe that your poem captures both the beauty of rain and the joy that some feel when they take away their umbrella and just let the rain fall onto them. Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem. I look forward to reading your next work for the beauty you can capture through words.
