The sound of rain
There are two things beyond all else I love; the sound of rain from a tin roof and sleeping in a feather bed.
A feather bed in its self is a soothing and comforting experience.
Adding the dripping rain from a tin roof to it, makes for a good nights sleep.
Many a night during my childhood, I left my windows open, to hear the rain as it pattered on the tin roof.
And to feel and smell the freshness of the air, coming through the curtains.
I could hear the rain pattering on the roof and shifting its way through the branches of the trees at the same time.
Sometimes the rain sounded like a cloud burst, then it would slow down and return to a gentle pattering sound.
While it was changing back and forth you would hear it steadily dripping from the roof.
Making a "Dot Dot sound" sometimes as the drops splashed into an old bucket or tin can.
Been awhile since I've slept in a feather bed with my windows open, and listen to the rain pattering on the tin roof.
Writing this story brought back some good memory's of those times, that I had while I was growing up in Kentucky.
Until Next Time. God Bless.
