The saying in Hebrew that describes rain, speaks of the gates of heaven opening. Admittedly, it’s more meaningful for a land that is often parched.
I have heard some describe the smell of rain as their favorite. Rain doesn’t have a smell, so it’s the wetness bringing out the earthy smells that they resonate to; the smell of leaves, the ground, the life mushrooming from below.
Rain is all about resonance. It’s how it hits other matter, and what that interaction brings forth.
Resonance is what life forces are, not only the physical, but also the spiritual. In this way, the expression of rain as the gates of heaven opening always makes sense to me.
to the falling rain
Listen to it pour
And with every drop of rain,
I can hear you call,
my name right out loud,
I can hear above the clouds
And I'm here among the puddles
You and I together huddle.
to the falling rain,
Listen to it rain.
