They sky, the air, the sun

I have been walking regularly these days, you know, to keep my curves under control, but today was a beautiful day to walk. Not that every other day isn't, but the sky, the air, the sun were extra lovely today. I took my usual route and noticed that the sky was a deep hue of gray, as if there was a major smoke building up, but the air was crisp, warm and cold, like a fudge ice cream with nuts. As I was turning the corner of the walkway, I noticed that the grey clouds were colliding rather urgently with each other and I knew what was in store next. But, I kept walking, sipping from the water bottle I held in the right hand.

The sun sparkled like a huge amber crystal on the left side of me, while the grey smoky clouds slow danced on my right side. And, here I was walking in the middle of this spectacle with nothing but my thoughts and feelings...and oh, the water bottle ofcourse. Just as I was contemplating my dreams, the clouds decided to lighten up a bit and drop their heavy weight. I still kept walking. The left side of my face was hot from the smoldering sun, while the left side was drenched in the runny rain falling like a marathon runner. I tell you it was truly beautiful.

But, soon the grey clouds gulped the sun and it all came down like one giant shower. I thought to myself, I can take this. Its not that cold and the water feels good on my skin, so keep walking. And, I did. But as if on queue, the rain stopped, and a out of nowhere, a rainbow emerged in the sky. My heart jumped with joy, almost like a kid, and I almost screamed "Look everyone - a Rainbow" but instead I went by the water and stood there, staring and admiring another spectacle of nature and just reveling in the joy of it all. The sky, the air, the sun!
