The beauty of rain
The word rain is not very fascinating. Moreover, this natural phenomenon is quite boring and dull which upsets us and even more depressing than joyful. That’s what most people probably think. However, not everyone feels this way; there are people who are fascinated by the rain, enchanted by its beauty and variety. What boredom are we talking about if the rain in the city doesn’t look like the one in the countryside; the rain in the field is nothing like the one on the forest; the rain in spring differs very much from the ones in summer or autumn? There are drizzling and pouring rains. Just think about the colors of clouds and their fancy-looking shapes! Are they boring? Now imagine the rainbow! Isn’t it a beautiful natural phenomenon? And we all are so happy to see it after the rain like it’s something magical given to us from heaven. Do you remember that addicting smell of the rain? How can it possibly be boring?
- The rain in spring cleans the streets washing away dirty snow. It doesn’t only clean the roads; it clears up our souls as well and brings us hope and anticipation of something good, of happiness. It has a unique smell of freshness, cleanliness and hope. It has a playful and merry character.
- Summer rain fills you up with happiness and joy. Aromas that fill the air after the rain are intoxicating: harsh scent of laid dust, incomparable smell of freshly mown hay or clean leaves and grass. They are just beyond words? As to its character, the summer rain is more stable than the one in spring, as it probably understands its responsibility for crops.
- There is special beauty in autumn rain too. It seems to make a gray autumn sky closer to earth. It usually brings the feeling of separation and unexplainable feeling of wrench, and maybe regret of something that never happened in the summer. In the beginning of autumn, the air is filled with the scent of mushrooms and leaves on the ground, in late fall we can feel the smell of snow. The fall rain’s character is not steady. In September, for instance, it’s light-minded and naughty. It seems to whisper something gentle into trees’ ears in order for them to take off their leaves. The rain in late autumn is very rough and unstoppable. It ruthlessly tears off the rest of the leaves from the trees and bushes.
The color of the rain
What is the color of the rain? Most people think it’s gray; however, a lot of poets and song writers claim it to be yellow, blue, purple and even black. They say light blue rains usually happen in spring. The colors of summer rains are rich blue and purple. They nourish the earth with reviving water so necessary for everything alive. The color of an early fall rain is yellow; however, for late autumn it’s gray with a leaden undertone. Black rain deserves special attention. It can happen in spring, summer or autumn. It intrusively drums in the windows, on the roofs of houses and nobody and nothing can stop it. The only thing left to do is just to wait until it passes. It definitely will pass! And after it stops we will see clear sky again and the sun will shine even brighter than before! A beautiful rainbow will stretch across the sky as a reminder that life is wonderful and there should be enjoyment in everything… even in the rain.
