Rain? No problem! I have an umbrella…wait, you didn’t mention there’ll be wind!

I’ve given up. The only reason I choose to wear an umbrella is so my cell phone won’t get wet. Ontario has had beautiful weather lately…wait, sorry I was just dreaming. The weather has been warmer, but the rain and wind have come out to play. I get it, we do need rain and wind, sure, but umbrellas are pointless when they occur simultaneously.

I walk a lot and perhaps it is my fault for walking in the rain, but my workplace isn’t too far to justify a drive or transit – Forgive me your Highness Mother Nature for trying to stay healthy – I just would like to come home from work without looking like a traumatized wet cat whose hair looks like it’s been electrocuted by the power of all demons.

Umbrella size does not matter, I have small, medium, big, giant umbrellas, and the wind will often find a way to destroy them, blow them away, hit me with them, and make me look like a fool in the middle of the street (how did you do it Mary Poppins?). Not to mention passing drivers who can clearly see there’s a puddle in front of them (after seeing the car in front drive through it), on a residential street, and seem to have no consideration of pedestrians. They speed up just to make a fast turn. Seriously, how do they know I love getting splashed by passing speeding cars?

I know I’m from rainy Vancouver, but please Mother Nature just give me a break :(. I don’t mind the rain when it is warm and not windy, or at least don’t brutalize my umbrella! How am I supposed to live my life to the fullest, if my pockets are full of water? I like to end things on a positive note, and I am thankful I can afford the proper gear, but I feel for those who can’t. I’m going to look into donating rain jackets to those who need it. I encourage you to do the same :), or something similar. I’m not too familiar with charities here, so I’ll have to do my research.

What’s up with Mother Nature?

Oh Mother Nature, you’re always up to something, aren’t you? You didn’t stopped after you gave us a terrible winter — did I mention before my vacation, I slipped and hit my back and head? I was okay, though — you had to delay Spring and kept giving us snow while my friends enjoyed the beach and sunshine. Just when I thought things were going to get better, they actually did! The forecast for today was 15 C and it really was. I could not believe my eyes, I thought I was looking at the weather in Vancouver, or my ipod was broken. I put on a hoodie and went to the bank…BIG MISTAKE.

I felt a bit of wind when I left my place, but I did not think too much about it. I was overwhelmed by the warmth I felt. I really thought I was dreaming or that I was suddenly transported to Florida —okay, I know it wasn’t that hot, but it felt that way compared to the awful winter we had— I felt happy, I felt like all the troubles in life left me. I was singing tunes and skipping by the front yard (okay, not really).

And then Mother Nature decided to crush my spirits by sending a hurricane-like wind all over the city. It’s like Mother Nature here in Ontario is on eternal PMS.

But, I didn’t let that get me down. I told myself I was going to enjoy this walk even if I were to be swept by the wind. I pretty much did. The ENTIRE walk to the bank and to the market,  my hair was tangling, my hoodie almost flew away, and my glasses (yes, I wear glasses) did not protect me against the dirty dust. It is my day off today and I just wanted to go for a walk and relax, but nope, that wasn’t going to happen. I have to admit it was hilarious trying to escape the gusting winds, but Ontarian Mother Nature just loves to poke fun at me, and sometimes I just want to be left alone. Poor Sun, it comes out and shines down on us, and we can’t even enjoy its company. Seriously, what the heck Mother Nature? I’m about to lose it.

Poetry: Together

Image

Opulent motions of water

a gush of wind 

and drops of rain

connects their souls

through marvellous melodies.

~~~

Problems corrode

amongst their deep desires

elevating hope 

and caressing their dreams

~~~

Recurrence of interruptions

they run

and hunt for their eternity

despite repression of rebel warriors

~~~

Their love bond shields

desist surrender

warriors break

love is hold

refuse to let go

they triumph
