The Beauty of the Rain

Ah, rain. Somedays, when it ruins my plans, I hate it. But today it was welcome. I love how the rain looks as it forms beaded jewels on the surface of leaves. And, I love the concentric rings that flow into one another as the rain breaks the surface of the pond. As I strolled around outside taking a few pictures before Ike hit, I started humming a melody that popped into my head-The Beauty of the Rain by Dar Williams. And today it was truly beautiful.

"This is your favorite kind of day

It has no walls

The beauty of the rain

Is how it falls, how it falls, how it falls..."
