Running in the Rain

I went for a run
Alone in the rain
Winding along the river
Scaling up onto the cliffs above
The gloom of the drizzling water
So beautiful

The clouds blanched the sky to a hazy grey
Tinting the distant hills
The color of the rusty dirt
Deepening and asserting itself
Vegetation that would have gone unnoticed
Suddenly a striking green

I ran until I got lost in my thoughts
Then my thoughts were lost to my senses
Finding relief in the melancholy
Solace in the exertion
I listened to the symphony of raindrops

When I finished
My mind was at peace
My body alive
Damn I love
Running in the rain
