stone #17

all day the rain falls.
i lie supine on the floor with the cat. 
outside the air smells like the sea
that gathers in spray in car park puddles,
like the salt that collects on your skin,
and in the wind that blows inland,
thick with seagulls and sand.

I really enjoyed reading this small moment. Yesterday the air smelt wonderful first thing, thanks to the rain.

Thank you Charlotte. The air smelt of the sea here, even though I live 40 miles inland! Strange but lovely.
