Rain has a scent that's all its own.

Rain Scents


Lightning zags.

Thunder claps.

Clouds are dark

With promise.


Rain splashes dimples –

Tickling the earth.

Rain caresses trees –

With an old friend’s touch.

Rain cleans flower faces –

Like Mom did

After a day of play.


Wind stirs the fresh air

Mixing these scents

In to a unique perfume

So rare and prized.


Desert, mountain,

Coastal or plain,

Each rain scent

Brings a memory

Of summer to life,

And carries one

Home again.
