Days of rain

i long for the days of rain;
when the air is thick,
the ground is soft,
and my mind is clear.

the drops hitting my skin
are a therapy like no other.

like fire,
they burn through my ropes,
and set me free.

i run from myself,
and fly with the wind.

too soon though,
with the puddles on the streets,
my wings vanish.

and i’m left longing
for the days of rain
once more.

A Misty Day 3

  2. Well captured Nigel. Many photographer ignore these type of conditions, and they can be challenging, but they are part of the natural world, and common in Ireland, so I think we should try to portray them along with the more traditional golden hour shots.
