It’s Raining, It’s Pouring…

Tenuously the first drops come.

And then more,

And more,

And more.

It’s overcast, and raining. It’s been raining all day, and on and off yesterday, as well.

I’m not complaining, though. I love the rain.

I love the soft, wet drops on my hands and face.

I love trench coats and raincoats and umbrellas and gum boots.

I love the green of the glistening grass below the contrast of grey overhead.

I love the pit, pat, patter pat of the showers hitting windows and roofs and eaves troughs.

I love a cup of tea – only tea for this occasion – as I sit by a window and watch.

I love running and dancing and splashing through puddles like a five-year-old.

I love the soul-cleansing effect of a good fall of rain.
