Rain, Gloom and Boom!!!

The prettiest and last of the daughters of the family, slender and glittering all over, was trying hard to get a peep of the weather outside of their rucksack. She was so relieved to see that it was still raining hard and prayed that it would continue to do so. She shouted to her family who were cuddled together that they may have few more days to live!

Her eldest, knightly looking brother, with one long leg and a pointy looking head with no body, jumped with fury hearing this. The whole point of our creator was to make people smile seeing us dance with fire with a whole lot of grace and glow and die. Living every moment, waiting for the rain to decide our fate makes me sick!

The grumpy looking Uncle, lean and dressed all in black and with no head or limbs, was thinking and talking to himself 'Why does it matter how we die? We end up making the air and water polluted and there are tons of people who hate us for this and I don't even shine at the end of my life. I wish we all die drowning, at least we will all die as equals!!'

The calm and serene gramma, dressed with a dress that looked like an icecream cone turned upside down with colors too bright for her age, smiled and got a little philosophical. Why not see the bright side and wonder at the imagination of men and women, in whose thought we were born and be grateful to those, who found the right way to give us shape and colors and characters. May be some day, someone will find a way to create a totally harmless version of us! It doesn't matter what each of us think or when the rain is going to stop. We are family and let's enjoy the time with each other, while it lasts!

Outside of their small world, little Johny looking impatiently out the window, jumped with joy, when the rain stopped. Hey! time to light the sparkles and rockets and snakes and fountains!
