Today in my art and literary based club, we were given a prompt that says “I find peace with the rain.” I am currently sitting here not sure what to write. They said we could write a story or a poem, but I thought I would write to you guys.
Our president of the club chose this prompt because it has been raining since yesterday. Yesterday it rained literally all day. Today it stopped around mid day but it’s still very cloudy and grey.
Everyone had been annoyed with the rain, but as I was walking yesterday I was happy for the rain. I love the sound, the look and the feeling that rain has. If only it were thundering, that all in itself is pure joy.
Everyday seems to be sunny or just stagnant weather. The rain creates a movement across the landscape. A beautiful movement.
The sky may be grey but there are drops of color from each lightening strike, each umbrella and each pair of rain boots. Beauty should be found in everything.
I find peace with the rain.
