Solitude.

I went for a walk in the rain. The streets were empty--and still are. Busy mind finally at ease. Silence. Space. Each step bringing me further inside of myself. Layers of green. I could have walked forever. One foot in front of the other.

Solitude. Walking in the rain.

It's beautiful, but I'm too tired to even yearn for walking in the rain.

I can hear the rain and the sound of your footsteps. I can feel the yearning. So much said in so few words.

"I could have walked forever. One foot in front of the other." This is so often exactly how I feel about walking, though I'm resisting the urge to go further these days than my healing tendon can bear. Endless walking sounds so appealing to me right now.
