The Rainbow Trail




*****

Shh.. Can you hear that? The sprinkling mizzling drizzling rain is secretly slinking, along with the crisp peppermint wind.

A day before, it was raining all day long in my city. I do love the rain, but, my Cupsy Dupsy thinks that rainy day keeps people from coming to our place. Well, it was a really heavy rain anyway, with thunder and lightings, and the wind, and the cat-and-dog raindrops. Nobody went to Cups. In fact, nobody leave the house either. Every car passing the street seem to be in such a hurry to get back home, not to mention the cyclist, motorcycle rider, and people who walks on the sidewalk. Oh, little do they know that a cup of Cinnamon Honey and a conversation with a friend are perfect for spending a rainy day at Cups. Cups loves a lingering conversation floating gently in the air, and that specific rainy day, there was no conversation at all.

But, that was the day before..

This day, a little magic happen!

The gray rainy day left a trail of rainbow footsteps in front of Cups. The trail was approaching toward the door and leave; as if it was walking into the cafe and leave after awhile. Well, I can't help but wondering. Maybe it was an invisible rain God who secretly walk into my little Cups, spend the grey rainy day in the warmth of Cupsy Dupsy with a troop of raindrops. Maybe, that's why nobody seems to have any conversation in Cups on that grey rainy day. Maybe, there was actually a secret conversation held by the invisible rain God and his troop and only the gentlest ear could hear. Maybe, we were just misunderstood the conversation to be the sound of the thunder and the heavy rain. Maybe..

But it wasn't so secret anymore when a day after the heavy rain, the sun shines shyly, revealing the little secret in the form of rainbow footsteps in front of Cups. Well done, Sun! If that was it, we don't mind having no lingering conversation in Cups on a heavy rainy day, because we know, maybe the rain God and the raindrops themselves were having fun in our cafe. <3!>

Dito and I now can skip along the colorful trails and pretending to be the rain God who plays follow-the-leader with the raindrops. Yippiee!
