Weekend's Perfect Rain Delay

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 12 years.

Sky full of darkness and Mother Nature's tears

Better to have that sentiment instead of

The last few days of her boiling rage

Sun burned so bright that you could fry

On the sidewalk instead of an egg

Close to 100 degrees of unadulterated anger

Not sure why Nature wanted us to suffer

But the effects were extreme heat and staying indoors

Actually glad for the excessive rain to arrive

Nice to not have the threat of a heat stroke looming

Want to enjoy being outside for more than 10 minutes

At a time before fainting sets in

Outside may be gloomy

Sun took a temporary well deserved vacation

Able to breathe for a few days

Even if it's under a large golf umbrella

Taking the good with the bad for the moment

Better to look at the positive than the negative

At least that's the goal of the moment.

Enjoying the benefits of a nice rainy day.

Enjoying the benefits of a nice rainy day.

Rain brings relief not only from the heat and dust, but also a tired psyche and the monotony of life. You have captured it very nicely in your words!
