To all you fellow hopeless romantics, who’d sooner part with slumber than miss a rain filled thundery night, hope you enjoy this ode:

It’s a warm summer night,

Under the veil of dusk I write.

The sound of thunder echo through the darkness,

The flickering of lightening reveal the hidden.

Thick storm of clouds blanket this gloom,

Drop by drop spills, the rain.

A faint glimmer of light sheds, the street lamp,

Through the window I gaze upon this sight.

Not a soul wanders outside,

All cozily nestled from nature’s charm.

The dawn is yet hours away,

This night makes its presence known.

Slumber has been chased away,

Can’t much miss to lay upon its arms,

When the magic of this night has me bound.

Surely, Sherley

Thanks for visiting! Cheers!

“The Zone”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Zone.”

An instance when I feel i’m in, “The Zone,” is during a run on a beautiful, Texan, summer day. Being kissed by the warmth of the sun, the cool breeze carrying the water from the resaca and brushing against my skin, the smell of freshly blooming jasmine flowers, the gentle gliding of colorful birds, the clear blue skies, the crispness in the air, my favorite songs joyfully filling my ears from the music player, the excited puppies in the yards wagging their tails upon my sight, the movement of my body feeling lighter with each step, the fruity taste upon my lips from my lip balm—makes me feel so in love with the moment. Not realizing I had been running for over two hours, my mind craved to keep going. I felt completely free. I felt completely at peace. It was my zone.
