I like rainy days
Because I can play with paper boats
Because I can jump in puddles
Because without rain we wouldn’t have flowers
Because without rain we wouldn’t have rainbows (and double rainbows)
OK. Not quite. We could still create rainbows using a prism. But with rain and a bit of sunshine, we get beautiful, big, spontaneous ones.
Because rain has a cleansing effect
And finally, because Gene Kelly says so
Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face

I don’t like rainy days, but I *love* those purple rain boots.
Aren’t they cute? I want a pair like that. In fact, I want a pair in every colour. Although I have to say that my rain boots are pretty cute too.
I heart walking in the rain :)
YESSSSSSSSS! This post spoke to me on so many levels. My favorite part of rain is the smell after everything has cleared up. The air is so FRESH :D
He he Glad you liked it. And yes, I also love the after-rain smell. So good!
Rainy days… Ambivalent about them… I like a hot rainy day, the ones that clear quickly, you know, where the sun still peaks… Fall rainy days, only when you’re in love, under the sheets with your partner, and you don’t have to go anywhere…
I understand. Most people feel that way.
I love all kinds of rainy days. On Fall rainy days, I love to cuddle with my cat, with a nice cup of tea and a book or a movie. On Spring rainy days, I love to put my raincoat, rain boots and rain hat and go have fun in the rain. So playful.
But most of all, I love the feeling of renewal I get with the rain. Cleansing, rejuvenating, invigorating. I always feel like a flower or a tree must feel when it rains. Water is life :)
You make a good a good argument for rain but it’s still not better than sunshine, IMO. Think of it this way, without the sun, we wouldn’t have rain.
The sunshine hurts my eyes so I don’t like it very much but I am able to appreciate the beauty of a sunny day and a clear sky.
The point I’m trying to make is that I appreciate all the things that make life possible. Be it sunshine, rain, air or whatever.
Sunshine or not sunshine, without water (and rain) life is not possible. Take Mars, for example.
There is life on Mars. I’ve seen Mars Attacks.
I stand corrected! :)
In my feeble attempt at humor, I forgot to add…that was very well said. Spoken like a true scientist-poet.
Thank you! :)
