What if you had never seen the sky?
There are ever shifting patterns between the clouds and the sun. Sometimes, it’s the sun that dominates the skies, and on other days – like today – it’s the clouds. And then all the colours dull, from the people to the pavements.
The rain’s coming today.
The clouds are bellying, blistering, they’re dark in colour. They bruise before they burst. You see, if you put your hands up, you can almost feel the weight of the sky.
Everything, blurs as it rains.Things sort of fall out of focus and the sky drops lower.
And then, after the rain, the clouds relocate and soften. The day draws back. But the dampness you feel, that won’t dry until the sun returns.
