The Thing Almost Missed


Having felt called outside, I walked into the backyard early this morning, but after daybreak, after having been awake for sometime; didn’t know what was calling me. The promise of rain that weighted the air? I stood looking out at all the early day had to offer and getting ready to come back inside turned around, lifted my head up. There it was: the calling, a rainbow struck across the sky and beginning to fade into cloud. Because then the rain did come! What’s something you’ve seen or lived only because you gave a second thought and looked up or over? You might write it, sketch it, paint it: the thing you didn’t miss out on! Send me what you write and I’ll be sure to thank you.
