The joy in simple things
She stood at the window, looking out at the rainy vista.
Rains somehow made her feel gloomy on certain days.
Today, she didnt feel anything for she had pressing matters on her mind.
Yet when the mind is distracted, it does the unthinkable.
She sat down on the window sill and watched the drops splattering on the glass pane.
It sounded like music to her in the solitude.
She slid open the pane enough to put her palm upturned outside.
The flecks of water felt like a friendly touch.
She slid it open further and put her head out with her face facing the sky.
As rain pelted her face, something erupted within her.
A childlike glee that broke a smile on her face.
Her spirit, which had been heavy a while ago, felt rekindled with joy.
