Dreamer's World February 22 2017 - Daily Prompt "Rhythmic"

The Daily Prompt is “Rhythmic”. A difficult word for which no clear definition instantly leaps to mind. I suppose the word itself implies a lack of actual planned cadence, it reminds me more of something that occurs without prior planning.

The sound of rain seems to describe what I am talking about here. When we hear rain hitting the roof or the window, we become attuned to the “rhythmic” sound it produces. There is nothing artificial about the noise, it is organic and not processed like the “rhythmic” ticking of a clock, but the sound of rain gains its own life as we listen to it. The variations from second to second are incredible when we listen closely. The spontaneity makes it wonderful.
