    The rain always makes my heart happy😌 it

    gives me a reason to stay inside, get cozy, make some hot cocoa and put on a good flick! Now.... If only I had someone to cuddle with 😔

    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.

    ...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...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I love a light rain, the clouds should be high

    and not right above for it makes dark, a rain should be light and bright, and should bring all the forest smells, makes you understand you are actually a part of the mother nature.
