Mona said to let the rain come tumblin' down on Poetry Friday!
Before I even knew the word, I had taken these shots this afternoon! I was so excited to literally christen my new rain gauge!
I have always been fascinated by rain. When my sister and I were about 6 and 9, we used to hang clear plastic bags out our windows and shut them so we could collect the rain. Then, we'd see whose bag got the most. Our older sister, who was about 15, must have thought we were weird little kids! (She'd be right!) She gave each of us a bonafide raingauge this past Easter as you can see. I bet I beat my sister this time!
Even though we're "all growed up", I still sometimes get the urge to hang a plastic bag out of my window!
I find the sound of rain on the roof soothing, just as I do the sound of waves lapping up on a shore. The sustained steady rhythm lulls me to sleep.
let the rain kiss you
and nature will take its course
quenching your desires
(A Maggie and Mona type poem! I can't make them sizzling hot like you babes, though!)
