The Rain

It's raining here and I'm having a warm cup of tea. I found this short poem on rain. I like it when it's raining as long as I'm at home. But when it's rain while you're having some important things to do outside your house, then it would be a very complicated things to do. But I sometimes miss the time when I was a kid playing on the rain and have fun. Maybe it will be a fun things to do just to stand in the rain and enjoy every drops of the falling rain from the sky.

I See The Rain

I hear the rain falling
I see people walking in the rain
I feel the rain touching my face
I see rain, rain coming down
I see rain, rain coming down

As I walk I see people running to their cars
I see children jumping into mud puddles
As I walk in the rain I see rain, rain coming down
I see rain, rain coming down

I wonder if it will rain forever
Is it because god is sad?
Does god have a reason for rain?
I see rain, rain coming down

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” — Langston Hughes

Yea I used to love the rain when I was little but now that I am able to drive, I hate it. If I have to drive in the rain, I get so scared. The lights blind me as it is and in the rain the lights reflect off all the water and really blind me. I'd rather stay home and warm by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate.

I love the rain! Well, not always, and not just because that's my name. :-) I found a solution, Ladybug, for that, it's called RainX. You put it on the windshield, and it helps tremendously with the reflections and low-visibility.

I guess I love the rain because I feel like it's cleansing and nourishing, that it washes away all the bad and what follows is colourful and alive. One of the reasons I chose Rain as my new name!

I love that quote Boya! In fact, last night I fell asleep to the rain softly treading on the tin roof, it surely acted as a lullaby for me.

Me too..I hate it when I have to drive when it's raining. But hot choco will surely be a perfect company..always=)

Rain loves Rain..that suits you I guess=)And I know how it feels to fall asleep when it's raining..makes me sleep like a baby...

I believe that rain is not just drops of water falling out from the sky but can be more than that..
