Rain is falling outside.
The sound of the water
Bouncing on the deck
Soundscapes adds an Old Dominion Road
Quality to the room
As the music brings a relaxing vitality
To the dark morning.
And finally, exhaustion begins to take over.
The calm of being so tired, so
Worn and worried
Is ebbing from my body.
I’m thinking with the rain
In emotional puddles
That are finally starting to wash away,
Finding the path of least resistance
That is so elusive without a storm.
And then the alarm goes off…
The music and the rain take leave of their duties
A clock ticks its rhythm
Of real life, responsibility, and continuance.
There is no time to catch up,
To find the peaceful groove that is coming
It’s back to the grind
And the prison that is routine.
Tick, tock, tick…
Crazy, but I feel I’m standing in the rain.
