Image result for umbrellas in the rain art
 

What is that wonderful smell when a rain shower passes on a warm summer day? Is it the fragrance of a new beginning, quenching us with the exuberance of youthful joy, a sweet wisp of hope for the earth to embrace, a cleansing, a freshness of favor, a cause for the celebration of life? I ask you then, if it is all of that, why would anyone with any sense of poetic license want to own an umbrella?

Hello Charlie, I agree I like to walk in the rain. I never carry an umbrella when it rains. Have a nice day my friend.

Hello Charlie, I like the rain when it sprinkles to the ground. I like the sound of the rain,it soothing for sleeping. I would rather get wet in the rain than carry the umbrella. Have a nice day my friend. I had toe surgery done on my big toe that is why i have not been on the computer. Have a nice day my friend.

When walking in the rain is a true joy, the merest thought of using an umbrella is abhorrent my good friend. I do so miss those youthful days and even my brother and I running races in the rain.. splashing both water and mud.. A bright gem and a fav too....

Hi Charlie, this is a gem of a write. As a rule i do not use an umbrella. A rain shower can be all you write and more Charlie. My thoughts start anew after walking in the rain, they are more clear. Love the content. Have a wonderful Saturday. Your friend always....Mike.

You did cute and deep together - what an achievement because it worked. Initially, I felt thrilled because I thought you'd captured a feel I have never been able to articulate and then you popped a line to gain my smile. A winner. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

If only all people were just as romantic as you my friend, Charlie, I think they would never think of getting an umbrella but since some of us, the mere human, are afraid of caching the flew they use one! Haha! Very well stated my dear friend. Much enjoyed!

oh Charlie this is a little gem, I love the freshness after a shower. I have never used a brolly since we moved here... its far too windy but I don't mind getting wet in gentle rain but not drenched and soaked to the skin!:-) hugs Jan xx
