Rain can also be the sound of Love's laughter
Rain is the sound of the universe singing to itself, just because it can

Iain, I love your first definition. Anon, rain is good, except when there's no place left for it to absorb, causing it to run amok in one's comparmentalized spec of the universe. Time to open the doors and let it flow.

" Rain is the world secretly crying for you, when no one else will."

That shot chills down my spine.
Beautiful, as always.

And when everyone hides away from the warm drops I take an umbrella and go for a long walk. The feeling of purifying while walking in the rain is indescribable and incomparable...

The Rain was always beautiful; Now it has emotional underlying tones...

All of the above. Including F. Subtracting two...the laughter of love and use of an umbrella. All I hear is your name. Drip-drop.

Plus, who needs an umbrella if they seek purification from the rain? Let the rain wash over you. Let it get you wet, soak into your hair and bones, let it renew you and wash away the staleness of your life. We just talked about this yesterday. You already know how I feel.

Rain is most certaintly the world secretly crying for you, when no one else will. Simply put...self pity. A justification and excuse. A optimal way in which to hide the tears.

I absolutely love the last line.

Savannah said...

I disagree...
Nothing like it.
It is in fact a connection with nature, a metamorphosis. Like reading poetry only not inside under the light drip-drop roof by the open window, but out in the rain. And yes perhaps umbrella isn't always a good idea...

No rain is anything and everything anybody can imagine. This quiz is pointless because any answer at all would be correct.

To me rain is a down pour of all the souls that were sacrificed to society but never saved. Rain is the tears of the dead trying to tell loved ones everything is ok. It is a calming noise when we fight with the ones we never meant to hurt, though we did. That rain is whats gonna kill me..

I just love this. I was at adoration in a church. I was two rows behind everyone. I was crying, and hoped for something as small as a hand to hold. It never came. I love the rain.
