City Rain

City Rain

Sunday, November 21, 2010

It snowed.  The boy got his keys and headed out the door.  He needed this drive.  He needed some time to think.  As he pulled out of the driveway, he looked at his home and then drove off, knowing that he would be safe while on the road.  He continued to drive along the main street of his town, not knowing where this road would take him, he just knew that he was going somewhere.  The boy turned up his Owl City mix and noticed that as he was listening to a song, he saw early Christmas lights.  So many colors of red, blue, yellow, and green.  He soon became lost in a world of color and music while he kept in mind that he needed to focus in order to drive safetly.  The boy had the strangest feeling as he noticed the drivers in front of him and behind him.  He felt a strange kinship to those drivers.  They were all on the road with him, even if they were heading to a different destination or not even going anywhere at all.  Perhaps most of them had the same reason why he was on the road.  Perhaps they needed to clear their heads and think things over.  Whatever the reason, they were on the road with him.  The boy continued until he went past a beautiful building called the Mount Timpanogos Temple.  He slowed down to take a look at this building and noticed that all the rooms were dark and no one was in the parking lot.  Just when he was about to leave the building behind, he saw a bright light within the temple.  The boy stopped and looked back at the temple.  He knew what that bright light was.  He had an overwhelming desire to go inside to see that bright light but he knew that he wasn't ready.  He promised himself that he would be ready for that bright light to visit him, whenever that might be.  He calmly put his car in drive and continued on the road.  The boy watched the scenery go by as he continued driving on the street lit road.  He noticed a beautiful park on his right and kept in mind that he needed to return to this park when he got the chance.  He didn't know why, he just knew that there was something at that park.  Something that he needed to see for himself.  As the boy approached the roundabout, he decided that it was time to go home.  "Will I ever go on trips like these again?" the boy mused to himself.  He decided that whenever he had the opportunity, he would go again.  The boy felt his mind cleared away of all things and found that he felt warm inside.  He knew that Christmas wasn't that far away.  Once the snow truly settled in, the boy knew that something special would happen.  He didn't know when, he just knew something was going to happen.  As the boy finally pulled into his house's driveway, he made a promise to himself.  He would be ready at all times, whatever it may be, he would be ready.  The boy got out of the car, looked into the snow cloud sky and walked inside to his warmth filled house.
