SEND TO A FRIEND:

    Well it's a rainy night.

    I wonder if the sun will ever shine again. Time to think. Too much on my mind. I can't sleep. I wish the rain would just wash me away. To be like that spot that eventually disappears after the water just keeps running over it. It gets smaller and smaller til you suddenly...

    It makes me happy when it rains.

    I feel happier when it rains then when it doesn't.

    A distant sky Or where leaves fall A dark

    delight Of heaven and thaw A meteor And rain to grass The dew of love And chirping nights Crickets to the ribs Humming to your tears Frogs to your woes Croaking your fears A night Like any other A night Thinking of you.

    Hailstorms pound my window.

    Its hypnotic and chaotic...I trace a wobbly but majestic heart on glass... lean in close enough to warm the window with my breathe...The outline of the etched heart contrasts beautifully with the rest of the foggy glass..With perfect mischievousness I add strawberry kisses...

    ...sometimes I just wish I could sit in the

    pouring rain for days. just let the water pour over me and not push me away. just pour onto me and split into all kinds of directions once it finds me. Finally a feeling of importance and apreciation between Mother Nature and me, alone. Washing all the aching off me for as long...

    Our Metal Roof

    Our home is stone with a metal roof. You cannot see the metal from the inside unless you are in the kitchen which has a wood cookstove. The metal is exposed between the rafters as the chimney exits the kitchen providing a wonderful drum for the rain! I love to sit and listen...

    One of the best things in the world is smelling

    that unexplainable smell during/after its rained/raining. And when its paired with a beautiful sight like the image above how can you not just sit back and enjoy the droplets that fall from the sky adove.

    It's raining and I love the sound

    because it's nighttime. It's like music to my ears. Ohh God, thank you for the rain. It can surely help the hot feeling of summer 👍👍

    Everything looks so beautiful

    after a heavy storm. I'm sad that it's over. But the beauty of its aftermath is enough to appease me.

    I love the smell when rain hits asphalt.

    The damp concrete smell is like a drug that I could inhale all day. I wish they made a candle for it.

    I actually hate when it rains

    because I have a fear of thunder and lighting and am always on edge about it, but I love the smell rain leaves behind.

    I totally love the smell

    when it rains. It's like somehow it brings back my old memories. When I was little I used to jump around in big puddles with my best friend Charles. We enjoyed the rain and the smell of the rain. We always used to go out when it rained. Ah great memories.

    After weeks of praying

    for rain, even though I'm not a great practitioner of prair, thunder finally broke the silence of this house. I expected it to be another show of tease but within minutes rain was pouring down and the earthy smell swept in through the open doors. I went out to dance in the...

    Rained most of the day here in Colorado,

    and yes, it was mostly light rain. I went running around to get errands done, and I had my window down in my truck, just so I could smell the rain. I love it!

    I can seriously say that rainy

    or snowy (I'm Canadian) days make me happier than sunny days. there's something about the sorrow that feels peaceful and comforting. I luv it! can't wait until fall and winter!

    We really need it though. I managed to get a couple great shots the past couple days.

    There is a word for that smell

    and it is petrichor. It is just one of the many things that makes me love rain. It seems like I can associate a smell with most things I love.
