    Default rain

    How about the writing?

    The rain started to fall that day in my sleep, and it was still pouring down splish- splash at noon with the sky being shrouded in a curtain of mist. The rain drenched everything: the streets, vehicles, trees, buildings along the streets and umbrellas held up here and there. The rain apparently swept away much of the restlessness and hustle and bustle of the city as well as the restless fluff that would have otherwise been floating in the air.

    What do you mean by "The rain started to fall that day in my sleep"?

    Do you mean in your dreams?

    Default Re: rain

    Sleep: A natural, periodic state of rest for the mind and body, in which the eyes usually close and consciousness is completely or partially lost, so that there is a decrease in bodily movement and responsiveness to external stimuli. During sleep the brain in human beings and other mammals undergoes a characteristic cycle of brain-wave activity that includes intervals of dreaming.

    Default Going to sleep has different meaning

    "Went to sleep" is not in "deep sleep".

    The rain fell in my sleep - it did not really rain. What are you trying to say?
