A Quote by Tagore – Clouds come floating into my life

 By Somali K Chakrabarti


Clouds come floating into my life, 

no longer to carry rain or usher storm,

but to add color to my sunset sky.

~ Rabindranath Tagore

Dark, angry clouds can create turbulence. They can, at times, be the harbingers of thunderstorm or cloudbursts that bring about destruction and mayhem, while at other times fleeting scattered clouds can add hues and shades to the orange sunset sky.

Similarly, adversities and challenges in life can either cause havoc and chaos in your life or add the colours of experience to your life, depending on how you face them.

The quote refers to being in the state of mind wherein you become aware of your feelings, to the extent that the ups and downs of life no longer perturb, distress or frighten you, but you accept them as a part of your life and look upon them as opportunities to learn from.

  1. I loved your interpretation. Tagore, as we all know, is deeply spiritual. Though he never did mention in so many words anywhere in his writings, it is an irrefutable fact that no one can write such lines without actually experiencing a higher surge towards the Divine.

    1. I completely agree with you. Without moving into the higher echelons of spirituality, it is not possible for anybody to capture and express such vast range of emotions and wisdom so beautifully in so few words. Thanks a lot for stopping by.

  2. I love this line Somali – ups and downs of life no longer perturb, distress or frighten you, but you accept them as a part of your life and look upon them as opportunities to learn from… So elegant and so practical 🙂


  3. One more from Tagore for you:

    “Who are you, reader, reading my poems an hundred years hence?
    I cannot send you one single flower from this wealth of the spring,
    one single streak of gold from yonder clouds. Open your doors and look abroad.
    From your blossoming garden gather fragrant memories of the vanished flowers
    of an hundred years before. In the joy of your heart may you feel the living joy
    that sang one spring morning, sending its glad voice across a hundred years.”
    – The Gardener, 1915

    by Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore.
