Oh!! How I Love It When It Rains

a peacock waits for the rains all through the year and dances and enjoys when it rains.
a peacock waits for the rains all through the year and dances and enjoys when it rains.

A rain shower is the best thing that happens, it washes away all the unwanted things and cleans the atmosphere. It falls on the plants; flowers and the earth making all these wonders of nature look all the more wonderful, and attractive. The rainbow formed after the rains have a matchless beauty.


Rains bring in a renewed charm and beauty in the environment. Small mushroom umbrellas grow all over and the flowers look fresh as ever as if newly painted and the berries look juicer. I like everything about the rains. I love looking up and letting the raindrops falls on my face. I love how my garden smells after it rains; the sweet smell of earth feels like bliss.




“A feeling of sadness and longing that is not akin to pain, and resembles sorrow only as the mist resembles the rain”
BY- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

What do you like the best about the rains?

  • Renewed and fresh colours of plants and flowers shining with water droplets
  • teaming spicy food while you watch the rain from your window
  • Dancing in the rains
  • Dressing up or for the rainy season
  • Fashionable and colourful umbrellas
  • Sweet smell of the earth
  • Sound of rain
  • Making paper boats

Enjoy the downpour when it doesn’t rain

I guess the rain showers have been designed especially for those who love rains and miss drenching when there are no rains. They also have shower valves and you can adjust for a heavy downpour and a soft drizzle. You can also decorate the area around with some colourful mini umbrellas, mushroom hooks and appropriate shower accessories.

Some heart drenching poems on rain:


The rain is falling all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.
By Robert Louis Stevenson



The rain has an art that I may not get,
So I stand still here and get soaking wet.
I feel so complete when I’m in the rain,
I feel no sorrow I feel no pain,
It may give me a cold but I don’t care,
There’s a calming sensation from grass to air,
The feeling of love I don’t have, I will gain,
Because my heart falls open as I stand in the rain.
Unknown poet

Enjoy the rains

In the rainy season you can see lot of colour full umbrellas, rainy season boots and dresses. The colourful trench coats are another thing that I look forward to wearing.

I loved the rains since when I was a kid. A heavy downpour meant a holiday at school. My dad taught us how to make paper boats and me and my friend floated them in the puddles. Well one thing my dad said that rain takes away all the healthy soil and it goes into the sea. So we should plant more trees so that the fertile soil doesn’t go away with the rainwater but instead it retains it inside. This will keep the soil health throughout the year and increase the ground water levels.
The rains apart from bringing in a renewed beauty in the atmosphere and everything around us are very important and provide us with water throughout the year by filling in our rivers. The downpour is god’s way of making us feel blessed. The rains wash away all our sorrows and difficulties and also help the growth of healthy crop.

I like rain only when it’s over in 10 min ;-)) But I hate the misty one that continues for days and days, because I can’t go outside.

carriethomson 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

hey!! hi iZeko, then i think it should rain for 10 minutes after every 10 mins :-) but if not the rains you can enjoy the sunshine after the rains have stopped, and the rainbow definitely..and you can sure add some steaming hot recipe hub to gorge on while it rains...:) A reason for you to smile when its raining outside...

Hi carrie, Oh I am so with you on this one, I love and adore rain, always have and one of my biggest 'hates' is the rain stopping, I know that's a bit odd and I can't explain it but I just hate it when it stops!

This was so beautiful, carry. I love rain and it remind me about my hub about "weird rain phenomenon". I liked your perception about rain. Rain is naturally happened to this earth. Like my "vote" above that sweet smell of the earth after rainy. It sound great when the rain falling after dry season, it always happened in my country which has two seasons. I always enjoy the rain. It should be a romantic moment for me. Carrie, you have done such a beautiful work here. You got my vote. Cheers....

The point here is genetics and inherited behavior. See how you accent is British? or Perhaps northumbrian or going back more Gaelic....I better stop about this going back too far..lol. All started at the cave, or in Adam and Eve's times, for our Christian fellows. Rain causes so many reactions depending on your background...just an example: Depending on how you mom(mum in UK) reacted to rain when you were a little girl, your reactions were copied faithfully. Most women get romantic due to the relation to water and beautiful nites with their male counterpart, basically due to forced staying at home and catching up with that 'togetherness'....I might as well write a hub about this subject lol...with your permission mademoiselle Thomson. What about me? I get ver romantic I can feel sweet feelings and share it with the right person... but nevertheless I tried to naswer your main question. Have a nice one !


carriethomson profile image

carriethomson 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

wo! that was a long one.. well great thinking and relating it to inheritance and all sorts of things :D well rains are simply beautiful and good to know you too get very romantic and share them with the right person :) looking forward to an excellent hub from you!!

Carrie-I am with you when it comes to rain. I love watching it rain, listening to the rain and going out in the rain. When I was a kid, we use to wash our hair when it was pouring out. One of those magical moments that you never forget. Thanks for all the variety in your hub about rain. It was fun and peaceful :-)

Talking about catching up Carrie. LOL! See how Minetonka is a proof of what I said above? Shhh! Now about, what's her name? Well, 'the lady who agrees on disagreeing' Women can be a pandora box, but when it rains...all feel like in Pandora, from the movie Avatar. Words like," you got my attention to the very end, or, I didn't realise that!... women get romantic after a rainy day. You see how me and Prasetio30 are the only males in here? LOL!

ENJOY!...thinking to write another hub tonite? any advice?


carriethomson profile image

carriethomson 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

Oh yes the Pandora in avatar was fab, sad that its fiction and there no such place in real. And when it rains it’s almost like being thee :) so in way you are rite...

Ya you prasetio30 and stars439 as well.. That pic you see is his daughters.

Well I just caught up on your hubs and saw that i was quite late in doing so and I have a lot to catch up :D

RTalloni profile image

RTalloni 5 years ago from the short journey

When growing up in central Florida--long before WDW brought growth and tourism--we had afternoon showers everyday at 4:00. It was like clockwork and it was very refreshing on those hot afternoons. Then we had the occasional hurricane--much needed by the islands in the Atlantic so they could have fresh water to drink--but wow the rain! We had astounding rain storms at night sometimes. I liked the rain then too, but that lightening was fierce and the thunder claps would go right through you!


carriethomson profile image

carriethomson 5 years ago from United Kingdom Author

Hi r talloni, yes i do agree that thunder claps and lightening can be frightening, rains can only be enjoyed when it drizzels and creats a great atmosphere rather than being thunderous and fierce. But what is amazing about the rains is that it represents so many emotion. poets have used rains to show happiness, gloom, anger, heroic acts and so many other endless emotions and it all depends on the intensity, timing and the mood of the individual when it rains. i can go on and on about this giving examples . but stopping at this i would say,

i just love it when it rains.

This is the driest Texas has been since 1895, when the state began keeping rainfall records. Our rainfall is running more than 20 inches below normal. It's been over 70 days with temperatures of over 100 degrees F. How I long for rain ... I will take any kind, misting, drenching, a cloudburst, a shower, thunder and lightning, can you imagine how the plants will rejoice? Please, you lucky people, send some positive thoughts our way ... thank you!

It is raining right now here in central Texas! It's 2:15 p.m. on Friday, September 16, 2011, and it is raining! Perhaps 100 days have gone by since we've seen rain. I am so happy and the trees and bushes and grasses are just drinking it in. It started about ten minutes ago and I ran outside and felt it falling on me. Isolated tiny cold drops, then a little more, then more, and now it is a drenching pounding shower. I had forgotten how rain smelled, sounded, felt! Oh I am so thankful for this rain. (Happy dance!)

I share the same sentiments as you do, carrie. The rain brings renewal and cleanses us of the world's sin. To me, there is nothing more calming than the effect of rain. Due to the fact that I have a voracious appetite for books, I really do like being at home while it's raining outside while reading with a cup of tea or coffee. There really is nothing more relaxing and makes me appreciate the fact that I'm alive :D

What a great idea for a hub! Carry on, Carrie ;)
