    A Sigh Of Relief

    It was the end of a busy but rainy day, I was walking home from the job I have at the laundrettes. I had just locked up and had taken my umbrella out of my handbag and started my way home. Suddenly, I heard footsteps from behind me. I paused. I peered behind me, nothing was there. I thought that it was the wind howling. I carried on walking but then the noise started again. I dared not look around. I carried on walking, but then the rain got heavier and I couldn’t tell if there was anything or anyone behind me due to the pattering of the rain on my umbrella. The lamp posts were switched on and were glistening like the stars in the midnight sky. I came out onto the main high street; I started to hear loud footsteps coming from behind. I picked my pace into what was almost a run. The footsteps were louder, I sprinted across the Zebra crossing with my heart beating like a drum; the chaser was an arms width part, when suddenly, a tram came along. I leaped onto to the tram. The pursuit was no more. I was safely on the tram and could breathe a sigh of relief.

    Water, where does it come from? Questioned the lady as she crossed the road. What is it? Is it the source of life? What does water mean?

    These questions all have answers, but they’re not mine to answer, they are yours. Let me take you on a journey, back to before the infinite piece of the universe was placed.

    Water, a natural life form, 75% of our bodies are made from it. Water is more than plentiful and at least every one in the world has drunk the same water. Truthfully, no-one knows where it came from but, there is one story behind all these questions.

    We ourselves are the makers of the transparent liquid. Throughout the year we have become humble about having water, we should be grateful for this wonderous living source. It could just look like a bland drink but, if we swim into the centre of water, we find the true meaning.

    Water isn’t just water, it’s life. Without it we could be a stone cold lump of rotting bones. If you don’t believe this, try to not drink water, you can’t because waters everywhere, even in the air.

    Rain

    After work, when I walk back home from a long, tiring day, I like to watch the rain drops on the rooftop of many houses, as light as a feather as it starts to drip from the grey, dark clouds. I jump in the puddles as I watch beautiful waters drops fall down like petals from flowers on trees and collide against the puddle’s surface, making gentle ripples.

    I dance and dance in this spectacular weather until I am worn out. I don’t care if people think that the rain makes the world a gloomier place, I don’t care that others say that rain makes them think of unhappy memories, all I care about is the different weathers and personalities the world can have when the weather changes.

    When I look at the rain, I think about all the countries that would be grateful to have something as spectacular as this. India, Zimbabwe and all the other places that do not have enough water or food. In this town, people are grumpy that rain comes and happy that summer comes and that is not being thankful for all the weather that sustains the human beings and pets in this town.

    Sometimes, I wonder where rain comes from. Maybe it’s an offering for good deeds or maybe it shows the lovingness and kindness to the world.

    This rain can make everything feel alive. You can dance and sing in the rain, feel the beautiful drops the size of bullets slip down your cheeks and your back. I promise you, the first time you try to play in the rain won’t be your last.

    I’m protected

    Reassurance wraps around me like a blanket,
    As my brilliant umbrella shields me.
    Because of my umbrella I’m set,
    For however bad the rain may be.

    A plethora of rain could fall,
    But I’d defiantly be protected.
    I don’t threat as the Heavens bawl,
    I just run home instead.

    Eventually, I reach home and I turn the TV on,
    While the TV is on, I devoured a tasty Bourbon.

  5. Running through a storm cold and wet, terrified from the rain,
    lightning crashes and thunder roars as loud as a lion,
    The wind sways you side to side and that is dangerous on the road,
    trying to get to the other side but the storm has too much force,
    I’m getting closer nearly there but the lights turn green,
    almost there almost there trying as hard as I can,
    yippee I have made it and the storm stops,
    safely I reach home hoping it’s sunshine tomorrow.

    RAIN

    Running, running rapidly home, so I don’t get wet,
    Annoyed because I had a hard day at work,
    Incoming thunder so I better move quicker,
    Now, sitting inside watching the rain pitter patter on the outside window.

  7. Bolu says:

    Once in our lifetime
    will go through a narrow road
    where there’s nobody around
    We just walking all alone
    Carrying attached burden
    And behind, chased by a storm
    Will the soul safely reach home?

    Left and right, nothing around
    keep walking in a small road
    Wind run chasing this feet
    Bringing sand to my eyes
    A bit hurt, force to tears
    dropped, flew, dried still fears
    Keep walking the storm just near.

    Rain pounding on the ceiling,
    Depression flooding through my body,
    Got to get a good nights rest,
    Soon roaring thunder strikes,
    My body paralysed with fear,
    Got to get a good nights sleep,
    Lightning strike,
    My throat tight and dry,
    Got to get a good nights rest.

    Morning comes,
    Everything thing still the same,
    Got to get on with the day.

  9. The Boring Town
    This town is boring and calm not even help is in sight. It is pouring heavily and everyone stays at home except for one old lady that goes to places daily. On this day she went to the shops and the roads were just empty. She dashed out from the shop on to the zebra crossing to the other side of the road. The bus station was there so she went there, before she even sat down a bus was as speed as a cheetah and came out from nowhere. She caught the bus and traveled safely to her bungalow.

    Powder-puffed cloud scattered in the dim sky! Lighting struck! Rain clattered against Cleo’s umbrella like a fire breathing dragon. She ran as fast as she could but had to be careful careless of the slippery floor.

    Lighting struck again and this time was more powerful. The wet dry lady jumped. CLASHHHHHH!!!! Cleo had fell!!! Cleo beseeched for help. Everyone encompassed her, panicking. She looked up, repeatedly blinked and found herself in a comfortable hospital bed.

    For the rest of the day, Cleo ruminated.

    The Darkest Day

    As the rain crashed and smashed down, like all HELL! Had let loose… The public hid away save from this apocalypse. But out in the light of day, charged one brave lone ranger! Braving the cold, standing defiantly bold. Right in the face of fear…

    With her brolly up, she looked like a human mountain. Fighting off the hurricane…

    As she was delivering aid, to the cowardly folks. Hiding in their little cellars, but then as she came back out… The sun was out! Had doomsday been a dream?

    A Rainy Day

    Powder-Puff clouds scattered around the dark night sky! The streets were in great turmoil as there had been fighting over the past few days. Jubilent Julie had just come back from a hectic day of work! Julie had to be extremely vigilent as the streets were very wet. It looked like the rain was everlasting! It was amazingly awful. She felt isolated on the streets. As she glanced up at the sky, she gazed at the wind caressing the birds through the depths of the gloomy sky. The thunder and lightning caused a loud tumult! She needed to look for shelter… So she ran vigorously accross the zebra crossing that was barely noticable! As soon as she approached the bus stop, the shiny red bus arrived to rescue her. It was a hectic day, but at least she got through it…

  14. A tumultous cloud above me,
    it didn’t seem to love me,
    as I raced along the pavement,
    it brewed…
    CRASH!!
    Lightning struck
    as the lady I could see through a window made a pluck,
    at her freshly caught chicken,
    she would not have her children lickin’
    her very precious food.
    Pitter patter, pitter patter,
    rain was pouring down in buckets of what seemed to be 1,000 l each
    I wold not be able to reach,
    that holy home of mine,
    I went under a tree,
    rubbing my hands with glee,
    for now I had a shelter,
    suddenly , I went helter-skelter,
    lightning had struck…

  15. I notice the miserable weather, it was benumbed ice. As light as a feather, the raindrops fall onto my umbrella, I hate mournful weather.

    Hail now falls and I am a bereaved loner. I only think of being forlorn and I wish the sky could be luminous.

    It is now snowing, what strange weather. At least snow is fun and I enjoy building snowman.

    The sun has latterly come out and I have the picture of bubblegum ice-cream with flakes, sprinkles and all kinds of sauces. I better find an ice-cream van.

    Dear Diary,

    Today was the worst day anyone could imagine.
    First, as I was walking to work, I fell over and grazed my cheek. I felt it throbbing and for a second I thought I was going to faint!
    When I got to work, I instantly remembered that I didn’t have my presentation notes! If I didn’t give the presentation by today I wouldn’t get my promotion, but worse, I would get fired. All of a sudden I felt my face burning, I looked in the mirror and saw my reflection, it was beetroot-red. My mind went blank; I couldn’t remember a single thing! I went into my ill- decorated office and started to sob silently and felt my tears sting my graze. I nervously opened the door and stumbled into the presentation room. All the bosses and managers were staring at me, waiting for an introduction, but all I said was “I am very sorry, I forgot my notes, and I am unable to do the presentation”
    The bosses and managers looked at me in disgrace until a bulky man fired me and told me to ‘Get Out!’
    As I was walking home thinking about the terrible things that happened today, it started to downpour like in a rain forest.
    This day couldn’t get any worse!

    It was this morning when the first heavy drops of rain like bullets started to fall.

    I was sprinting home from my mum’s shop and could hear the rain hammering at my umbrella and I could feel a chilly stream pour down my face.

    As I reached shelter, I thought how rain always seemed like a steady downpour of tears crashing into earth and spreading darkness.
