A Mother’s Tears

Synara looked through the picture windows, squinting toward the horizon. She could only just see the sparkling falls as the excess rain sluiced off the city ceiling. She shook her head at the transparent material that protected the city from the elements.

She continued gazing into the distance as her mind wandered back to her youth. She could feel the wet grass beneath her small feet, feel the awesome joy as she lifted her face to the gentle patter of drops tickling her cheeks, her eyelids, her lips.

Her mother had gently moved her damp hair off her face and Synara opened her eyes to see her wide smile. “May you always remember to take joy in what the Mother offers to us, Syn.”

The words echoed in her ears as she snapped back to the present. Ignoring the ache as she glanced once more at the shimmering water, she turned back into the silent apartment to prepare for her day.

Thank you so much. Physical description of surroundings is something I always struggle with, so this is particularly nice to hear!
