Sunshine, then Tornado

I LOVE to sit in the sun outside on my patio, soaking in the rays, either the early afternoons before work, or on my days off. I was lucky enough to catch some rays the past few days before going to work, but today is my day off and… I wake up to a tornado warning. Rain pounding outside. Nooooo!

I also awoke looking at Instagram (of course) at some lady doing yoga on the beach and I looked at the waves… and ached for them. I live in a city that’s far away from the ocean and it’s getting to me. I woke up wishing for water… and then I saw the tornado warning pop up on my phone.

Lol, no nature, not that kind of water.

So I wrote a poem.

The sunshine waves,

Tornado proceeds.

Know your character

Through unkind raindrops.

The theatre of life,

As always, awaits.

      Thank you so much Abby!! I’ve been away from the ocean too long. I used to live maybe 2.5 hours from it, and now I’ve been living like 5 hours from it. We had a honeymoon/vacation last year near water (cruise!), but finance-wise, not sure what this year will bring, if anything. I can hope 🙂
