You have a great beginning, Where Angels Fear, run with it! (Love the word gossamer!)
Cities in the rain are more mystical than magical to me — a pinch of fear wrap in dark beauty. But, what do I know? I’m not much of a city person except when on vacation in Manhattan, and then, I try to choose days when no rain is predicted!
I do know about rain in my backyard and I love it:
A summer rain, after a humid Florida day, the air cools slightly, the raindrops plop and plunk, ducks chatter happily, frogs peep and croak, traffic stills, plants sign, and I sit, enjoying it all.
