A Sweet Rain
Chaucer had the right adjective when he wrote about shoures soote, sweet showers. That’s what we have today in Bahia Soliman, the gentlest, coolest drizzle. It’s as if the world were wrapped in damp tranquility. And stillness. There is no breeze. The birds are singing. You can hear the raindrops on the trees. And then there is the earthy smell of rain. A beautiful, peaceful day.
