    Rain! Yay!

    I love a rainy summer day - can you tell summer heat isn't my favorite?


    Awaken slowly
    Staccato rain on the glass
    This day will be fine

    Steady drips slap on
    Already drenched cement and
    Puddle on the grass

    Others long for sun
    Basking on beaches and such
    I prefer the rain!

    I soooo agree! Good thing I live in Alaska, huh?

    One of my favorite smells (I'll describe it the best I can) is the smell that lingers after a cloudburst on a very hot day.
    I don't know if it the smell of the grass or dirt or pavement cooling, or what. But, I love it.

    Beautiful poem. You're so talented. Do you mind if I share it with a friend? Sharon lives up in Denali Park and swears she's allergic to the sun. She's another rain worshiper.

    The rain has stopped for now, but it rained so hard today there are still puddles on the grass. The birds seem louder today - I wonder if the sound just travels batter on water than on grass!

    Looks like rain for Saturday here, and some tomorrow. YAY! I love rain also. The heat has been brutal, but thankfully my condo stays nice a cool during the day.

    Thanks, Lut! I actually love the snow, too - and rain, and blizzards and - well, Paul says my middle name should be "inclement!" He loves the heat, and prefers to hide from the rain!

    While I'm not a fan of rain, I sure wish we could get some around here. California is drying up!!!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Yes, I think of you folks when we have a big rain, I feel sorry for your whole state, especially the farmers and poor communities.
