Rainwalk

I am walking through a steady rain, the steely evening lit by the glowing reds and golds of fall’s colour display.

I feel the magic of this life, a quickening of the heart, an uplifting.

I pass under a bridge’s pale, soaring arches and its lights turn on, one at a time, matching me step-for-step:

Enchanting.

In the midst of a life messy with family and work and responsibility, this moment feels like the perfected scene of a movie.

Unencumbered.

I don’t want it to stop. I feel I could walk for hours. And so I do.

Dreaming, I let fall all expectation, all requirement, all responsibility.

Dreaming, I walk in a twilight that hangs between day and night,

indefinite.

I make turns without thinking, following curiosity, letting whim form my path.

Until, rousing myself, I find myself facing my front door.
