early morning rain
Saturday morning raindrops falling out of the sky. The sun hides behind the clouds… and the morning, usually so bright and cheery, is gray and clouded. People hide inside their houses, curled up in their beds, cuddled under blankets, sleeping in. No movement in the streets. Only a single bird chirps here and there…no sun to awaken them.
And so this morning, so unwelcome by many, is a welcome gift to others. The rainy day offers a few more moments, minutes, or hours – whatever the skies decide – to the creatures of the night. The rain hides them. The clouded sky shelters them from the glaring visibility of the sunlight. And so, as the rain comes down, for a few more moments the creatures that love the night will have their freedom away from prying eyes to bask in the glory of the rainy morning. The raindrops glint like beautiful crystals as they come down in the dim morning light…no creature can deny their beauty, but few people will be out to experience them. This particular beauty is a gift for the night creatures.
And as the light eventually starts to peak out through the morning clouds, the creatures of the night know that the rain will be over soon, and they will go back inside, to their day lives… but for a few more moments at least…for these few more moments… they’ll enjoy the raindrops falling out of the sky.
