Cleansed in the Rain

Aug 08, 2021 by R. L. Perry
Two days later I heard thunder, and I went outside to take a look. Any normal person would recognize a storm was coming and go back inside, but I went for a walk instead. If I would have turned at the end of my street, I may have made it back home in time, but I turned the corner and continued walking further from my house. In a flash, the torrential rain was upon me. There was no sense in running home, I was too far away. As I was walking home, I started thinking being caught in the rain was a cleanse to wash away everything I just released when burning those letters. I walked back at my normal pace and gave thanks to Mother Nature, arriving home cleansed and soaked to the bone.
