it was raining when i left work today.
the soft, soaking kind of rain you read about.
the flowers and crops seemed to turn their faces to the heavy clouds
drinking in the delectable gift.
it pattered softly atop my little umbrella
the wind was not blowing
birds were calling
and as i walked down the sidewalk
i couldn't wipe the silly grin off my face.
it also showered yesterday.
these days have been a rare treat, as the rain has not come with storms.
i stepped outside for a moment
and soon finding myself
bounding across the soft grass in bare feet
feeling the earth between my toes.
