When I am Up there

After a slow and satisfying walk
I sit down
And lose myself in the scenery
I see clouds changing shape and
The sunlight
Piercing the clouds
The wind hits me in the face
And I close my eyes
I am happy in that moment
I try capturing what I see when I am
Up there
But it never comes out the way I want it to
In pictures or on page
So I decide to just be in the moment
I look down and trace the path back home
Then to familiar houses
Remembering
I have made a lot of promises up
Some kept and some

Still working on

I hate it when people make grammatical errors. And I hate it more when they mis-spell words. I mean I know everyone is not perfect but what's happening these days on social media is too much for me to take. I can accept spelling errors to some extend, for example, if someone spells "receive" as "recieve" then we can understand the confusion. And at this point I am even kind of okay (only as I am writing this)  with some of the shortcut spellings like "luv" instead of love because they do sound a bit similar and saves a lot of time and  "luv" doesn't mean anything else (to my knowledge). But "when are you cuming?" SERIOUSLY!!??? Behind my phone I am like, "I don't want to but if it's really important to you I can make it in 5 minutes." (If you know what I mean). Consider what the word you just spelt means too.
I know you guys are saving time so that you can save the world or something but you know what? Teachers taught you to spell words correctly for a reason (*no Hoobastank, not now). They wouldn't have bothered with the writing curriculum if you could just spell words however you wanted to. If not they could have just done the reading and speaking part and be done with. They could have saved time for themselves and done something better than you guys.

I want to sit by the window
On a cool rainy night
Like today
With you by my side
Drinking out of our cups
Me coffee and you
Lemon tea
I'll put my hand out the window
Collect raindrops in my palm
And sprinkle them on you
Trying to get you to talk
And end the silence
And then just talk.....
