Five-Hundred Word Challenge 917: Writing About Rain

Morning. It is morning and there currently is a reprieve in the amount of rainfall that we are currently receiving. How joyous and all that other stuff.

It’s nice. It’s nice to have a break from things on the odd occasion.

The rain has been at times deafening, heavy and violent. It has been beating away at the roof of this residence and the ground surrounding it, though I imagine that its violence has been far more widespread than I am giving it credit, and such is the way of things on the odd occasion.

It has been a rough few hours, and by few hours I mean also the hours that extend beyond a few as this storm started its raining yesterday. Mostly in the evening, however. It’s mostly been continuous throughout the night and only now has it decided to have a bit of a breather. Sort of a relief.

Maybe stuff will have time to dry now, but I’m not entirely certain. I’m not certain on a number of things and I’m especially not entirely certain on this. We’ve a lot of rain coming out way and as such there’s a lot of work that needs doing in between the brief breaks that we get along the way.

And now the rain has resumed and the noise once gain picks back up and it’s all chaos outside, but perhaps not the same kind of chaos as it was earlier, and perhaps that provides a certain sense of relief as now it doesn’t sound as aggressive and vicious outside. Now it feels more calm and sort of typical for certain typical scenes and framings. Maybe. Of course it might be raining a lot harder than I think it is and I only think that it is not raining as hard as it actually is, which is an interesting form of unintentional deception through perception based on what my immediate surroundings are and are not doing.

I do know that if I go into the back room I will hear the rain with a greater amount of clarity and it will sound exceptionally violent and harsh, but of course I will still something something and find a difference in perception due to difference in surroundings due to difference in position in space and time and all of that other stuff.

It certainly does provide a pleasant enough background sound at times and right now it is peaceful, but it comes and goes in waves and I’m there for the ride as here inside my bedroom I am safe from getting wet and for that I am lucky and thankful.

Maybe if I were outside the rainfall would sound much more peaceful but right now that is not something that I want to try and find out. I would rather do this and then do work and then do some other things and get on wi0th the day. I’d rather hear the rain here, and listen to its shifting waves.

The time it took to write five-hundred words: 06:38:23

Once more this is a bit of writing that felt like it took a long time to write.

Not anything particularly interesting. Just sort of really grounded writing about the rain.

Written at home.
