“Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Women, they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know”
These lines from “Mick Fleetwood “of “Fleetwood Mac “ from his song “Dreams” touched my heart deeply. It was still raining and I kept looking at the sky. Since I was a child I liked the rainy season. It always brings out the child in me. Running around and dancing in the rain comforts me like nothing. When raindrops touch my face they actually touch my heart. The cold winds get my heartbeat faster.
Many beautiful songs, books, movies quotes and poems have had the theme of rain behind them. On one hand, we see rain being used as an image behind the expression of sadness, loss and a broken heart. On the other hand, we can see rain bringing out the playful side in us, our inner child and our ability to feel carefree and natural.
Have you ever heard this quote” Anyone who says that only sunshine will bring happiness, has clearly never gone dancing in the rain.” All rain lovers like me will understand this very well.
The music in rain can be felt when its soothing sound comforts our heart and soul. There are sound machines, meditation and calm music with the sound of rain being used as a tool for relaxation. Maybe you can also listen to some unspoken words through raindrops.
Every time it rains, it reminds us of a story from our past. Sometimes we recall childhood memories associated with rains or our college days when we felt so real after washing out together in rain.
A cosy corner at home, a cup of hot tea and some evergreen Bollywood music is the best combination to relax on a rainy day. In fact, Bollywood has always exploited rain, establishing a connection between rain, music and romance. So many scenes and songs have been made constructively using this combination.
Who can forget the song “Pyar Hua Ikraar Hua hai, Pyar Se fir Kyun Darta Hai Dil.”Raj Kapoor and Nargis in Sree 420 bring this song to life.
“Rimjhim Rimjhim Rumjhum rumjhum,bheegi bheegi rut me hum tum tum hum,chalte hain.” Manisha Koirala and Anil Kapoor coyly romancing on a rainy day in the movie 1942 a love story. This song makes one feel like walking in the rain with beloved humming the tunes of the song.
I am prompted to think is it just me or everyone feels the same?
Let me ask you…
Do you love the smell of damp soil and grass?
Do you love the sound of rain crashing onto the earth?
Do you love the fresh splashes of rain on your body?
I love it all.
Rain is a human for me…it whispers, it hammers, it knocks, it attacks, it wakes me up, it brings my emotions out, it clams my soul and so many other things.
I need some more rain to shower. Want to feel each drop so I can express it with more words and add beautiful meaning to it. Let that rain wipe out and wash away all that stress and bad energies.
I Want to let that drop get in that root inside. To bloom with that bliss and feel that epitome of love for rain. I just want to hold that little love for rain before it stops raining. Because of God’s love, I have tasted living water (rain) and I will never feel thirsty again.
I would suggest all of you to Skip a day at work, give yourself a day. Enjoy the pouring and fall asleep while it downpours! 😊😊
