Whenever it rains, I feel so free
Free as a bird, rain is my life
Washing away my troubles
Quenching my sun baked soul
While others rush for cover
I stroll among the empty streets
The rain dancing upon my lips
-an excerpt from the poem “Rain is a four letter word” by Brian Tang
It snowed in the UAE this weekend, in another emirate on some parts of the mountain. About four inches of snow was reported, I didn’t get to see it but I wish I had so I could definitely say “snow in the desert? now I have seen everything.”
It rained as well this weekend, it wasn’t a heavy one but the wind that accompanied it was strong and relentless, reportedly causing a construction crane to topple over on a major highway.
All in all, it was a quiet day for me the perfect chill mood so I stayed at home, in the comfort of my bed and enjoyed the weather. I really love rainy days, there is always something fresh about the air after it rains, I love how clean everything feels, how crisp and cool the air becomes. I never complain when it gets cold in Dubai, I’m always so grateful since it doesn’t come often. This weekend, thanks to the weather I stayed in bed, snuggled up with a cup of tea and my rainy day playlist…there really is nothing more relaxing.
Here are a list of some songs from my playlist, both new and old that are just perfect for rainy days. Enjoy!
