Most people don’t like rain. They associate it with unpleasant greyness and gloom. But to me there is something about a storm that is entrancing.

From the low rumbles of thunder that echo through my ribcage to the cadence of raindrops splashing against leaves and pavement and dirt to each blinding bolt of lightning that could be the final flash before the end of my days.

It’s all so violent and powerful and breathtaking, yet it brings life. It transforms the world below with its furious song and shapes the earth to be reborn into beauty again.

All this change happens without warning and without mercy, just as it happens in our own lives. And though it is frightening, I cannot help but watch the storm rage on and wonder what my life will look like when the sky settles down again.
