Rain falling can be so soothing.
I can’t help but give thanks to the rain,
Relaxing stir crazy nerves,
Keeping people at home,
Washing away the pollen,
All the good things rain can do.
A steady shower became a pouring torrent
When the munchies came my way.
A bag of trail mix,
All lightly salted
Brought a taste I had not savored in a long while.
Too often, I’m rushing,
Stuffing my face
So outside of the tasting moment
That I forget to be mindful
Of the joy food can bring.
Earthy, and oh…that salt…
