A Magpie Tale in Sunday 160


Outside is raining,

My head is spinning,

Tired of complaining,

I open the door,

and begin to walk without looking at the floor,

Then, I heard raindrops singing.

  16. Not sure the east coast would agree right now... but I definitely miss strolling in the rain, or sitting on the porch listening to the musical sounds of a good storm.
