I laughed out loud


I drew the curtains
The weather was miserable
A somber grey day

Sad clouds rushed above
Obedient to their master
Raspy thunder coughed

Then the lightning struck
The clouds wet themselves with fear
and I laughed out loud

So I went outside
Standing there unprotected
Now kissed by the rain

  7. There is a freedom that comes in not being afraid of the rain - or getting drenched to the bone..one of those mindful..gay abandon times of moments which are an absolute joy
