The Happiness of Rain
100 Days of Happiness – Day 2
As I mentioned in a very recent post, I am a pluviophile. I have been a lover of rain ever since I was a child, and nothing brings a smile like the rain, especially the petrichor fragrance that the earth throws up when the first drops hit it.
The weather today was quite sunny and sultry in the morning, but the weather of this wonderful city where I live is such that it changes unexpectedly. And my friends and I were taken by surprise when the rain began to pour in the afternoon. The roads were jammed as we returned home; as expected of course. People crossed holding those colorful umbrellas that brought back memories of school days.
It had not rained as heavily near my home, but the clouds above promised different by nightfall, and to my joy, it didn’t let me down. Beautiful, and happiness, is the pitter-patter of rain outside my window as I sit to write a story. It cheers me on. And hopefully, the story will be as beautiful as the rain.
