Something about rain

There is something about rain.

The sound. Hushed, like a whispered invitation. With no direction, it surrounds, enfolds.

The smells. The explosion of soil life that yields that pungent quality that speaks to the deepest urges. The acrid-sweet smell of ancient sunbaked stone, rinsed clean of its collected sins.

The moisture. Eyes closed, face upturned to a bleak sky, eagerly catching droplets with the tongue, a drenched shirt clings to its chest, goosebumps on slick skin, spinning with arms outstretched, shivering.

Yes, all these things. But above all, the mystery. The renewal. The wonder. The hope.

Yeah, rain for days on end can drive one crazy. But that first day of sunshine after a week of rain...ahhh.

I don't mind rainy seasons in the tropics though, where it rains for a brief period every day and then is beautiful. I was in Guatemala for the rainy season a few years ago and I loved the rhythm of the daily rain.

I just realized that telling someone from Dublin about rain might cause eye rolling

Very nice.

When I used this new KEYWORD search, I was surprised over how often people use the word "water" when writing. It IS the most essential of the elements...

I love the sound of the rain. I like to stay indoors alone and just read books, listening to the rain outside.

Very nice post, my friend.

How I love a good thunderstorm. Nature in all her glory. Staying inside, candles going, wind blowing thru the windows.....Nothing like a thunderstorm to make me feel at one with my body and with nature....
