A Gray Rainy Day

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.



I love a rainy day
Just chilly enough to wear a flannel shirt
To feel snug and secure inside it’s warmth
Like snuggling an old blanket brought forth

I love the ambiance of a gloomy day
The grayness, raindrops, and puddles to splash in
To just jump into a puddle and chase all worries away
It’s a happy feeling, really it is

Then to come inside and get a cup of warm tea
To sit in front of a warm fire with run away thoughts
Perhaps reminisce about an old friend
Or visualize traveling somewhere north of my dreams

So some rainy day, if you get a chance
Splash in the puddles, sing and dance
Remember that little things are sent our way
To remind us to be wise, because mercy is just change in disguise.
