Rainy lights…on a November night

Let the rain kiss you.  Let the rain beat upon your head 
with silver liquid drops. 
Let the rain sing you a lullaby.  
Langston Hughes

The other evening going to our friend’s house for 
Darling Daughter’s Birthday, I kept on playing with 
the camera, not really knowing if anything would come of it.
I was really surprised to see that  instead I took a trip 
down memory lane, going all the way to some 
long forgotten childhood memories…

Car lights ahead were blurred away  by the falling rain, 
every thing had such a mysterious feel to it. The motion of the car, 
combined with the nice heat was taking me far away,
 back to another time.  I was slowly falling into a sleepy state 
remembering of other car trips taken long, long time ago
 during other cold rainy November nights…

I could have been either eight or nine years old tightly tucked 
between my siblings, listening to the soft rhythm 
of the windshield whippers lullaby.  
You see, as a family we always traveled at night
when we had to go visit distant relatives…
Until last Saturday, I had forgotten how much, as a child,
I loved traveling in our car, on cold rainy nights, for 
those long, long journeys.  Feeling warm, protected 
and slowly drifting away into a sleepy, dreamy state 
where fiction and reality were dancing together
like those rain drops on the windshield.
What do you love about rainy November lights?

  1. Karen, it was so interesting to do and you are welcome to try it as well, I am sending you all our rain so you could have fun with your camera ;-)Se'Lah it was taken while waiting on a parking lot in front of a grocery store (we had forgotten Darling Daughter's B-Day candles ;-))

  2. What a cool idea, Anyes. I never thought about taking a picture like that. I'll have to steal the idea like I did with the Vince and Marie's mushrooms. However, you'll have to send the rain to southeastern part of the US for me to accomplish that. We're dry as a bone.

Talk to me, I am listening :-)
