Why does Kahlil Gibran call rain “earthly life” in "Song of the Rain"?

Every mortal being on earth is bound to go through a define life cycle. The boundary of earthly life is definite. In the poem “Song of the Rain”, rain has been personified as a living being bound to a life cycle. Like every other thing on earth, rain moves in a circular way by coming back to its origin where it rises up from. From this perspective, the poet Kahlil Gibran is right in describing rain as ‘earthly life’.
