Heavenly Symphony

It just started raining.

At first I thought someone was tapping on my door. The sound was hushed yet bold.

I looked outside to see huge wet circles scattered on my patio. Raindrops were falling slowly but steadily. Each one landed with a singular muffled thud on the cement outside my front door.

I stood for a moment and watched the pattern of raindrops spread to my gate, each splatter enlarging as another drop raced to join the others.

Slowly the soft percussions blended into a gentle symphony before lifting into a crescendo finale which still beats on my roof.

It's as if God is crying elephant tears. I hope they are happy tears.

Elton John "Tears in Heaven"
