Summer Rain

Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby. ~Langston Hughes

I like summer rain more than any other rain. There's a feeling about it that no other season holds, a peaceful, cleansing feeling. Summer rain colors the landscape with a Monet-esque brush; colors are vivid yet soft. The world takes on a fairy tale mood.

The rain has a musical quality here. It must be all the leaves. It sings like a lullaby, just as Langston Hughes writes.

Sleep well, friends. I will, with the lulling sound of raindrops on the trees.
