i need to move somewhere where rainfall isn’t a cause for celebration
where it’s something so familiar and comforting
like a morning conversation with a good friend
not like an exceptional long distance phone call
that comes through only at the most opportune time
Writer’s note: It’s raining now, hence the inspiration behind this piece. As I live in a desert climate, there’s always mixed feelings about the coming of rain and I can never get enough of it. I know people who live in eternally drizzling spots of the country would argue with me about the wonders of it, but it really makes the city ( and me) so relaxed and humble.
