Rain Is Wonderful

tiny drops,

each a world of its own,

fall

from ashen sky.

Rain.

bringing peace and serenity

to all who pass below.

the soft

pitter-patters

on leaves

and rooftops

and umbrellas,

raised by the foolish

to ward off the wet,

make a song

and each drop

Is

its own unique note,

forming a perfect melody

that is only for the ears

of those who truly listen.

as the rain sings,

the air is filled with a smell,

a rain smell,

a smell of dampness

that hangs in the air

with the very wet itself.

rain

makes the day

sleepy.

slow.

calm.

cool.

wet.

Wonderful.
