Wet drops land hard and fast against the wooden planks.
The sudden summer storm catches us unprepared.
In halter tops and flip flops, we wait it out under a camping pavilion.
Rivlets of water trickle through my hair and down my back.
I shiver at their tickles and catch a chill despite the 90 degrees.
No one talks, we just watch the rain.
We listen to it pound on the roof.
We hear it splatter through the tree leaves.
The rain is so hard that it shrouds the forest like a veil.
I breathe in its heaviness. I smell the pine.
I relax and close my eyes. I am there.
Note: This is fiction. I did not go hiking that day. My husband went and took this shot! I wished I could have gone and now I have, through my writing!
