Rain, Rain, Rain


Rain, Rain, Rain

Rain can come as a heavy downpour or a gentle sprinkle, yet I enjoy a gentle drizzle more.

Even though there are many similarities between light and heavy rain, I would like to say some differences. To me heavy rain sounds like a giant that just had a cow stomping around so hard he could break the ground. Unlike heavy rain, to me light rain sounds like a pencil tapping to the rhythm of a song. Another difference is how when a heavy rain ends all the worms come out, and after a light rain there are a couple of puddles here and there.

My favorite rain is the gentle sprinkle. I love how when the soft cold rain hits your back you get a little chill down your spine. To me the best part of a gentle shower is how it can sooth you to sleep. I enjoy how after a light shower it smells fresh and clean.

My least favorite type of rain is the heart pounding thunderstorms. When the rain hits you, you get a splintering piercing feeling that burns your skin. I dislike how a hard downpour can wake you up at night by the lightning. The worst part of a heavy rain is the smell of worms everywhere you go.

Even though I like a gentle sprinkle, a heavy rain is good once in a blue moon.
