Rain and lightening

Turning to my right side in bed my eye catches the fire of the candle I left lit that night. I turn on my back and look at the curtains. It is still very dark outside, and all I see is the flickering of the lighting strikes. How beautiful, I thought, to wake up to the sound of the heavy rain pounding on your window. How soothing is it to hear the trees outside sway with the wind.

I turn to the clock on top of my bed and notice it says 4:00a.m. I notice I still have two hours and forty-five minutes before my alarm rings for work. I blow out the candle and curl up tight with my covers. As I doze off to the music of the weather I realize this is my happiness. That exact moment, is what peace feels like.
