hold the world
and burst

Those moments right after there rain stops are among my favorite. There’s still that slight tapping of drops falling from where they landed in the trees and broken rays of sun as the clouds clear. Everything is new and clean and beautiful.

blue wind rushes
long strands of grass
flowers twirl

The mountains surrounded everything and they were majestic, but the tiny little flowers caught my eye. The clouds whirled overhead and the wind pushed through the grass, letting the flowers dance. Such a lovely moment in a beautiful place.
