how does it know


Sometimes the rain falls like crystal mist, barely touching anything but the air. Sometimes it comes down in giant bubbles that smack the ground as they land. And sometimes the rain descends like a single sheet of film covering everything in its path. Sometimes I sit in the rain and think about what it is like to be rain.

that moment

when the night clouds

are cotton candy pink

against the pale blue sky

that moment

when the subtle breeze

gives the tallest tree

a gentle nudge at it’s very top

that moment

when the distant traffic

and yard birds

seem to sing in harmony

that moment

has all but passed

for in your mind’s eye

your heart will smile forever
