“rain”

i woke up this morning and it was every where
covering the backs of chairs
rolling down the sides of trees
beading on the deck surface
it had rained and i had missed the cleansing

i missed the chance of falling sleep to the sound of nature washing away the impurities of the days past

i missed the chance of smelling the freshness that comes from the first few drops

i guess its all ok though
i woke up this morning and i am thankful for that
because i was able to see that it had rained
