There Is Something Beautiful

Photo taken a couple of years ago near UBC in Vancouver 

There is something beautiful
About the rain
In Vancouver
The early hours paint themselves
In a calming greyness
A veil of misty drizzle
Cloaking the city in 
Mysteriousness...

There is something beautiful
About looking out through the window
Onto that
Painting of dark green 
Trees
Their silhouettes 
Appearing in the
Mistyness...

There is something beautiful
About sitting
Here on this purple sofa
Green blanketed with tea at hand
And writing this down
This
The soothing grey humming
Rainfallness...

Yes!
There is something beautiful
About the quiet gratitude
Of seeing all this beauty
From the living-room
Early on a Saturday morning at 6.30am...

I let myself be
Cloaked too
By this
Mysterious misty rainfallness
Feeling 
Soothed and refreshed
Peaceful and relaxed
Happy and content
