The golden rain tree symbolizes the year. It is seen in profusion at this time all over Kerala
IT RAINS TRUE GOLD
Strung down resplendently
Burnishing the very ambiance
A dense shower of veritable gold
Is the gold rain tree celebrating my yard.
It does away with the leaves
The verdant giving way to glowing gold
Like LOVE keeps dispelling Hate
I can hear the patter of this glorious rain
On the tiles and cobblestones
Roofed and paved the paths of my soul.
