Rain

Beautiful, clear torrents of cleansing.
Pitter-patter on the windowpane.
Green earth.
Mud.
Water in your eyes.
Blink.
An indescribable, sweet, tangy scent.
A soft swish of wet tires against the pavement.
Rumbles of thunder.
Cozy inside.
Or if you're brave,
run outside.
Outside into the glorious wetness.
Spread your arms open wide,
embracing the droplets
that are falling like jewels
from an empty grey sky.

I love rain, it's so beautiful! The one great defect: the mud it leaves behind...
