cleansing rain

I stared at the storm today. I looked at the clouds rumbling, jumbling together. I looked at the lightening spit across the sky. I felt the thunder shake the ground I was laying on. I felt the rain against my fingertips and the tears combine with the drops from God. with my hands palm up and my feet in the soil, I could feel the worry wash away. All the tension in my neck sank into the blades of grass. Life moves so fast and it is hard to take a breath. But today I chose to take one for me. and only me. my thoughts are constantly consumed by fear, by what ifs and whys. but for just that one moment, with my body parallel to the horizon and my heart racing, I felt at peace. sometimes even the sky has to scream and while mother nature raged on, contentment filled my soul.
