The Right Attitude to Rain


On a cold and stormy day, feeling as down as the rain which came in sheets, I poured over the shelves in the used bookstore that I frequent. Alexander McCall Smith’s book entitled The Right Attitude to Rain grabbed my attention as its essence pulled me in then inspired. The idea of a cup of tea while snuggled under a quilt with a cozy mystery guided me home with a change of heart to find a spider’s web, beauty in the rain.

The Right Attitude to Rain

Sun lost like my spirit
behind dark clouds, obscured view
happiness invisible when gale winds blow.
Change your position
to a spider's view.
It's a cozy time to read, knit
feel the energy, forces move
saturate the dark core to cleanse away
nourish thy soul, hydrate
gain a new sight
the right attitude to rain.
