To The Beat Of The Falling Rain

Living in the Gap

January 28, 2012 – Rain storm

While many find rainy days to be depressing, I’m beginning to find comfort in them. I think they’re anything but dreary…so much action! Today the downpour traveled with the wind. Rain pounded the ground, bouncing to crash again and again until it either seeped in the earth or built puddles upon the grass and streams along the pavement. The leaves on the bushes tinkled and clinked as the raindrops pinged away at them. The forsythia branches hung low from the weight of the falling clouds…the squalls continued to tear at it; its branches dragging low to the ground struggling to lift into the moving air and water. Blankets of rain sprayed the house and pavement, ranging from gentle drip drop splattering showers to thumping harsh torrents. The rainstorm seemed to be a drummer who just couldn’t find his beat. The drummer boy wore himself out, and as he napped the sun came out to play.

    I agree, Suzi. I ADORE rainy days. In fact, we had one yesterday.

    LOVED that!

    Have a great Saturday…..X

  2. A vivid description of a rainy day. As I grow older, a rainy day seems to justify holing up inside with a book or my knitting or taking a nap. Perspectives change with the years.

  3. Beautiful description of the rain. I also love rainy days (probably because they are infrequent where I live,) but I’m not crazy about the storms that come with lots of lightning and loud claps of thunder.
