The Smell of Rain

The smell of rain

brings memories of

dark summer afternoons,

raindrops running down window panes,

the heat of the house released,

as storm ends,

and windows opened  to accept the cool breezes,

that scatter the lingering clouds

  1. Just happened, right here. Oppressive morning interrupted by a downpour, forcing the windows closed. Couple hours later–after some clearing–the influx of fresh air made thing feel downright refreshing.
