      Great stuff, UH. Here's my favorite:

      A poet is someone who stands outside in the rain hoping to be struck by lightning.

      James Dickey

      I actually wrote a 55-story titled, "She Is the Rain."

      It only happens when it rains...Thinking of her. She looked into my eyes while lying there in my arms mouthing the words I'd so many times before took for granted. But I couldn't hear her and God knows I tried and God knows I do love her so much everyday...It only happens when it rains.

      Hope you like it.

      Thanx Dohn for the comment.

      I liked it. A touching one. I hope Mark and Earnest don't read this, because the moment any of one read the word God, they are going to attack you. lol

      And that quote about poets touched me too. What's your zodiac sign BTW? You look like a Cancerian.

      New Years Eve, Brighton Beach, midnight. Rain falling gently. I thanked the sea and the elements for our earth. Thought of the blue moon and the coming year. Then dived under the water to come up to see the lightening light up the sky and hear the thunder greating the new year. I stepped gently out of the waves, not wanting to be hit by lightening... maybe Im not a poet,

      Last year, we had disasterous bush fires. This year we are welcoming the summer rains.

      I love jumping in puddles like a child and watching clouds form before their magical droplets fall. I love the feel of raindrops on my skin. The sound of rainfall when I am tucked in bed. The vision of thunder in the distance. The scent in the air after a storm. Natures beauty is in all her seasons.

      Thankyou .. that quote by James Dickey is best.

      Coincidentally, as I am making this comment, it is also raining. I think rain quotes makes you connect to your emotional side and just lets you let go and sulk in the moment.

      Rain is the thing I love the most.

      there's a quote about rain, "I walk in rain because nobody could see my tears in it"

      Love these, especialy Roger Miller's and Denzel Washingtons! Theres this one I really like that goes "I love to walk in the rain, because no one can see my tears." I think it so sweet (yet sad).

      Here's one I wrote during a storm last week.

      "I planted a field of paper flowers, and then it rained. But the rain did not ruin my flowers. It made the colors run, and created a shining rainbow."

      And I have another one, but I don't remember it correctly:

      "And when it rains, it means the sky is sad, and I, I just cry along with the clouds."

      I saw the rain pouring from the clouds and how light and empty the cloud would have felt. How i wish that I am the cloud now but I just cant get the rain out of my eyes and it pains me. My chest seems to be too tight and i just need to let it go. There is just too much of it and i just need to pour it out....

      "And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow" It seems this quote was also attributed to Gilbert K. Chesterton ?

      Let out the rain in you as how the cloud let the rain pours. It lightens the heaviness in you n brings you to different perspective as each drops of rain lessing out the weight of the cloud as much as that in you.....
