Pink Rain



Last night it rained pink, delicate strands of cotton candy from a cloud colored magenta by the disappearing sun. These heavy, dripping clouds passed over the valley all evening. Steel grey in sunlight, like stewing resentment; a cloud so heavy, its weight could be felt pressing down.

How can a cloud so heavy still seem so far away in the mountains, when the faded blue bowl of the Los Angeles sky always seems to be knocking against one's head?

Thank you! Unfortunately, it doesn't count towards my 5000 words.
