Daily Prompt: Gray

The gray sky moves in as the rain begins to fall down.

All is quite as no one is out and about in this rainy weather.

Everything is growing and eating up all the drips of rain as it lands on the grass.

All the hard work of cutting the grass and making it short again.

Will be short-lived as it rains for days to come and grass and trees soak up the bath they have being craving.

Daily Prompt: Companion

My companion right now is my dog as we sit

inside as the severe Thunderstorm does it work outside.

The rain is heavy as it beats on windows and slams on-screen doors,

begging to be let in.

It just wants to play and wash over everything you own and letting you

know material things can be replace but you can’t.

So be safe out there in this storm because it wants a companion too

and it’s best to just not let it have its way.

I’ll take my chances with the companion I have today safe and sound inside

my little home where the rain can’t hurt me as long as I have faith that my God will

keep his children safe and not to worry about the things I can’t control.

The Cycle

It all starts when three things go bad

And of course you never think about it.

Because the Butterfly effect may not have

Happened to you.

But it happened to her,  and it all started on a rainy day.

First the she went out in the rain and got wet getting into the car.

Secondly, after enjoying her time in the library, she walked out smiling up at the sky silently thanking it that the  rain had finally stopped.

Only to step right into a massive puddle, soaking both shoe’s completely.

Thirdly, she had to drive home barefooted and then step out, and walk on her wet driveway and the steps leading up to her house.

She strongly regrets coming out today, for you should have waited for the rain to go way to enjoy her day.

Views through Glass!

I see you through the walls you put up to keep them out.

I want you to know that no matter how many walls you

put up I will break them all down.

I know you seem to think being on your own will always be your way

to live without feeling disappointed but I know the truth.

You will smile again, and you will bring down all those walls.

Because living behind the glass is nice sometimes but there is so

much more outside those windows you avoid.
