I’d leave a big part out if I didn’t tell you it rained last night.
Standing behind the counter of my minimum wage job,
a customer stepped inside shaking off what seemed to me as droplets.
“It’s raining out there!” he stated in disbelief.
And with all the built up energy I’d been harnessing, I sprung from behind that counter,
passed the customer I should’ve been welcoming in,
and out the door to bask in the weather I’ve yearned for.
With my arms outstretched, I span in circles looking up at the sky that had been left by the sun an hour before.
It was the highlight of my day.
To continue this beautiful time,
I awoke this morning to cloudy skies leaking through my window and the sound of thunder crashing through the slight crack I had left open.
Haku, my cat, was sitting on the sill eyeing the drops that found their way inside our home.
It was a beautiful morning today, it was.
As I set my alarm to see another, I wonder what tomorrow has in store.
But that’s then.
Have a good night.
