What Are Some Rain Metaphor Examples?

“Pouring rain,” “rain washed light,” “rain dancing across the meadow,” and “rain soaked skin” are a few examples of rain metaphors. A metaphor is a figure of speech that uses words nonliterally. For instance, rain does not actually wash light, dance, or soak through skin from the sky.

Rain is also compared to other things, such as the sound of thousands of horse hooves on the ground. A simile differs from a metaphor in that similes make comparisons using the words “like” or “as.”

In idioms like “it’s raining cats and dogs,” rain is also utilised.
