Wishful thinking led me down the trail. Above, the clouds continued to roll in, carrying wishes of their own. Maybe they would part and provide a sunrise to write about, maybe the sunset would merely remain a wish.
I sat - I waited. The crows laughed in the distance. Feeling chilled, I couldn’t help but laugh back at my flying friends. Maybe they saw something I didn’t. I continued to wait.
Patience always pays, or so I’ve heard. The sun crawled out from under the covers …
proving me right.
