The sound of rain takes me to a place of inner peace as the
Rain falls in sheets and slides down the roof and over its edge in a curtain of water.
Tree leaves dance with the weight of the rain and
Flowers wash their faces in its freshness.
The sky is lower on rainy days and
Holds us close to the ground.
Sounds are muted and muffled and
Light is defused in grayness.
But it is not a sad and depressing grayness,
But soothing and peaceful,
Full of necessity.
A rainy day, soft and dark, begs us to stop, rest and be mindful of our surroundings and loves.
It reminds us to take the time to be lulled by the patter of rain on the windows
Into a place of inner stillness,
And there remain, content to just be and accept what is.
