One night i looked out my window into the world which was being saturated with the rain. this is what came to my mind

Nature’s Mysteries
By: Walker Andreasen
Oh how the world wonders me.
This night captivates me in its essence as the rain falls. As the dark gray sky engulfs the earth the sky seems to come to an end in its near-black state. It seems as if it’s always been this way; since the dawn of time.It seems as though the Earth has never seen light, like the only light it has ever seen comes from the lamp posts along the street and the headlights of cars. The sweet sound of the water splashing at the tires as the pass through the water sounds as if the tires were frolicking in the wetness.
The sound of the drops of water falling to the pavement from my roof in a way that has no beat. I look into the blackness from my window, and wonder, how nature works.
If it wants, it can turn this rainy night into snow, and turn the black sky to a medium gray with the light orange hues of the street lights dancing in the snow reflecting off every perfect flake, light the world a bit more; the grayness, whose end seems endless with the light.
But whereas nature see’s no time. The Grand Canyon hasn’t formed over millions of years, but has rather formed to where we see it now. It’s only getting bigger. It hasn’t stopped. Mountains are just a part of the landscape. Nature wanted them there, so nature put it there
These black, stormy, rainy October nights have not robbed me of my heaven, but instead they make me want to look deeper into the eternal blackness. It makes me want to wonder more about life’s mysteries. But then the occasional twinkle of the lamp lights or the occasional frolicking of tires bring me back to reality, where my pondering begins.
