The Joy of Rain

People that love rain are called pluviophiles. The word pluviophile comes from the Latin word “pluvial,” which means rain, and “phile,” which denotes a fondness for. Therefore, a pluviophile is a lover of rain, or someone that finds joy and peace of mind during the rainy days.

ROBERT L. BRIMM

“Colours shone with exceptional clarity in the rain. The ground was a deep black, the pine branches a brilliant green, the people wrapped in yellow looking like special spirits that were allowed to wander over the earth on rainy mornings only.” – Haruki Murakami

  1. I love the poems and quotes in this post. Please allow me to suggest a slight correction, though…”-phile” means a fondness for a specified thing or person…key words “fondness or love.” I think you just left out the key words accidentally. Thank you! Your blog is fantastic!!
