I just did a search of "rain" on my iTunes -- and then deleted all the "train" songs! ;-)


I'm not sure why you minded the rain this evening. I think it started around 8 pm after a lovely, warm day. As far as I'm concerned , I love an evening rain because it doesn't affect my plans for the day AND my garden and lawn get watered so I don't have to go out and do it myself. I thought the rain was a nice ending to a pleasant day.


I am just SO SICK of the rain this spring! And we know many people with flooded basements that will NEVER get dry (or so it seems...).


I Love A Rainy Night (Eddie Rabbit). Or is "love" going too far?


After Rain
P.K. Page

The snails have made a garden of green lace:
broderie anglaise from the cabbages,
chantilly from the choux-fleurs, tiny veils-
I see already that I lift the blind
upon a woman's wardrobe of the mind.

Such female whimsy floats about me like
a kind of tulle, a flimsy mesh,
while feet in gumboots pace the rectangles-
garden abstracted, geometry awash-
an unknown theorem argued in green ink,
dropped in the bath.
Euclid in glorious chlorophyll, half drunk.

I none too sober slipping in the mud
where rigged with guys of rain
the clothes-reel gauche
as the rangy skeleton of some
gaunt delicate spidery mute
is pitched as if
while hung from one thin rib
a silver web-
its infant, skeletal, diminutive,
now sagged with sequins, pulled ellipsoid,

I suffer shame in all these images.
