Dropped From Heaven

A billionaire's party was on by the pool side.
Food and drinks made the rounds.

"It is going to rain," she remarked.
The host overheard her. 

"No, it won't rain", he wished to say.

The ethereal sunset and clouds seemed to support his views.

He wanted to question her sanity.

The very next moment, there was a thick cloud-cover.
Large drops fell on his face.
There was a heavy rainfall.
Everyone scurried inside.
He saw her enjoying the rain.
He was convinced she was insane.


He remembered the last time he had done the same.

Do you feel that we are all insane in our own sane ways?
Do you agree with the saying - "appearances are deceptive"?

  6. Are you, perhaps, implying that the billionaire made his fortune partly as a result of thinking unconventionally?

  7. I enjoy the rain on my face now - ever since my cataract operation I don't wear glasses!

  8. Perhaps she had a magical power that could turn rain on and off like a tap. No? Just a thought!

  9. She can enjoy what comes her way, maybe he can relearn that.
