Splat, splat, splat.
The sound of water falling from the sky.
Hitting the ground.
Splashing all over the place.
As I walk towards my mail box I notice how all the cars seem to be parked outside people's houses. As if no one has any intention of going to work today.
For a moment I stop and stare.
At the dark clouds in the sky, blocking any potential sunlight from getting through.
At the raindrops making circles in the puddles.
A leaf catch my eye.
It has raindrops on it.
"Make a wish", I think to myself,
as I spot a dandelion,
knowing it's most likely the last one this year.
I see Sophie running towards me,
and for a moment I wonder how many cats have been left to themselves this summer.
How many don't have a place to come home to
when they need shelter from the rain.
How many are cold and lost
And I wonder what the world would be like,
if it wasn't filled with so many shitty people.
