Rainy days really are the best.

Truth be told?

I love the rainy days best.

Not just for the refreshing cool in the air,

Or the spectacle of flash and thunder.

Or even the gentle patter of the waning downpour.


I love them because of the excuse they provide.

How I don’t have to justify staying inside,

Or reading a book.

Playing silly games until nightfall,

And closing out the day knowing I’ve done nothing of worth.


I go to bed on rainy days,

Often hoping they’ll stretch on past the void of midnight.

I want to wake in the morn next to the warmth of your body,

Press closer,

And feel no guilt in defying the insistence,

Of my blaring morning summons.
