Why I Love the Rain

I’ve always enjoyed a summer rain shower and find thunderstorms energizing. When the clouds come rolling in and the wind picks up speed, I’m the first to welcome the first dollop of water that falls from the sky, or the quick burst of driving rain that soaks everything and everyone in its path. Yes, I’m a sucker for rain, so I was only too pleased when we were treated to torrential rains last night, followed by a lovely afternoon shower today.

I penned this haiku-type poem a week or so ago, and tonight seems like the perfect time to share:

Mountain Storm

Dark storm rushes in
Obliterating sunlight
Corpulent clouds burst

Swaying, bowing down
Trees pay homage to the storm’s
Dominating force

This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Like the Rain by Clint Black…

      • Right? They’re ALL awesome. I just heard “Nothing But the Tail Lights” on Pandora the other day and sang along at the top of my lungs. Their ’90s country station is awesome – so many good songs I’d forgotten about by so many awesome singers you don’t hear anymore. And unlike today’s country stars, you can tell who’s who just by listening because they don’t all sound the same! It’s wonderful!

        Wow, that got kinda ranty. *blushes*
