The weather this morning was appalling. Gone were the plans to go for a stroll. Instead we stayed inside, all occupied with our own pursuits. It made me ponder on how we react to situations, dependent on our mood and situation. So here is a parallel text.
Rain lashes at the window
Sun peeps from behind the clouds / The sun is in hiding
Somewhere there must be a rainbow / Struggling to fight through
I huddle inside / I hide inside
Protected from the weather / Retreating from the weather
Warm and cosy / Feeling trapped
Listening to the wind / Listening to the wind
Chime music in my ear / Howl around the building
Absorbed in my crochet / Busying my hands
The time passes / The time crawls by
Until at last I stir and stretch / Until at last I rise
Having weathered the storm
The weather cheered up after lunch. We went ten-pin bowling. Admired the rainbow over the estuary. And this evening I played with some crochet, completing yet another angel, plus a star and a bauble. The day was completed with homemade damson gin and some chocolate. A good time.
