tonight i stayed up because i heard it was going to rain. it hasn’t for a couple of weeks so i knew it would make that rain smell.

i was outside just as it started. i leaned over the balcony and started inhaling deeply. nothing except cold air burning my nose. i told myself to calm down, assured myself the smell would come. and after the ground got wetter, maybe after another 30 seconds, which felt like too long, like i should give up, after i had thought of several reasons why the smell was not going to come this time (ground not hot enough or dry enough, too soon since last rain? et cetera) it came to me.

i just peaked out the window. it’s not raining anymore and it’s still there!
