Awakened by the dripping rain, it was early morning, my third night in the car. It was not raining much, and it rhythmically hit the roof and windows of the car. I hadn't heard this crisp sound for a long time. In my hometown, I don’t have to go to work in the fields on rainy days. I just lie on the kang and listen to the sound of raindrops hitting the roof. Sometimes it’s hurried, sometimes slow, sometimes dense and sometimes sparse. The mats and the mud-covered roofs blew up the rain and fog. Raindrops also hit plastic sheds, shovels, and tin buckets, making louder noises. They also fell on trees, wheat ears, vegetable leaves, and flowers. The soft plants made the raindrops soft, and the rain and mist drifted across the fields like cooking smoke. , everything is so quiet and peaceful. Now I'm in the car, the roof is a cowhide drum, the raindrops beat violently, and then a stream flows from the roof through the window, the rain is like a flower blooming on the smooth window glass, and through the flowers I see A blurry, deformed world.
This is a long journey of rain, we meet in October, the sky is covered with dark clouds, the sky is gloomy, the rain falls from the sky and joins hand in hand, weaving into an unbreakable net, I am like a prisoner caught in the car by the rain. Cars galloped on Qinglan Expressway and Beijing-Kunming Expressway, the rain poured endlessly, the car wipers swayed rapidly, like a flag in the wind, and the water on the window glass could not be wiped off. Outside the car, the rain is the vast waters. I am like a fish wandering in the water. My fish from the desert and the Gobi is terrified in this pouring rain. In this thrilling rain, my palms sweat and I feel nervous. He himself became the rain. The car music is soft and soothing, but it can't dispel the panic from the heart. In the dry and desolate Gobi and desert, I hope that the abundant rain will water the boundless Gobi thoroughly, make the grass all over, and the flowers bloom, but now I am so afraid in the rain. rainwater. The speed of 100 yards became very slow, the car behind kept overtaking us, the car in front disappeared for a few seconds, and the flashing rear lights of the car were like torches in the wind and rain at night, gradually being extinguished by the rain, from Looking out of the car window, the red star is distorted and deformed, like the sun hidden in the thick clouds in the oil painting, faintly. The grass and trees on both sides of the expressway were blurry. I could not see the appearance of a single grass, a tree, or a mountain. I just retreated back in patches. The vegetation and mountains were hidden in the dense rain and fog that rose. It seems that in order to avoid something terrible, he always hides in the rain and fog. At this time, there seems to be a flood outbreak. Now I can't see anything except rain and fog. The rain and fog are like waves rippling in the sky. The rain on the windows is like a surging river. It's very scary. The rain that runs too fast makes people dizzy. car jolted in the water like a sailboat. A car was approaching, and the splashing water wall blocked everything in an instant. We seemed to be moving forward in the dark. The strong light of the headlights could not penetrate the wall. The blackness in the dark night is the blackness of despair. Of course, hope is born from blackness. Blackness breeds life. Blackness makes life grow.
In the heavy rain, there was still a lot of traffic on the highway. Several cars collided, the wheels were thrown far away, and the car body was damaged and could not be moved. The overturned car lay on its back like a beetle, and I saw many parts of the car, black axles, steel frame, fuel tank, engine, red skin, idling wheels like the beetle's hairy legs, waving in the air, flipping The body that couldn't help was calling for help in vain. Someone was standing in the rain making a phone call, waiting for rescue. These flashed before his eyes, hazy, as if from a lifetime. I have had an accident like this myself, when I called and I was in a blind spot, no one came to rescue, no one knew where I was, and losing touch with the world was my deepest fear. It was an afternoon in early winter, the sky was snowing, and we were lured into the Gobi by the long-lost snowflakes. The snow is getting bigger and bigger, our passion is high, we go deep into the hinterland of the Gobi. At dusk, the snow stopped, and on the way back, the car sank into the sand, and the car in the sand grew into the Gobi landscape like a hill. The Gobi where the snow stopped was dead silent, and the wind whistled away the shallow snow on the surface. The Gobi is pale yellow, the white grass is on the ground, and there are few people around. Is it a mirage or a dream that the white snow just now. The Gobi removes the snow curtain, and we cry in the Gobi like sharp and strange basil. The setting sun pierces through the dark clouds as pale and languid as a traveler on a long journey, it is the last ray of light of the day, taken away by the heavy shadows cast by the sky in just a few minutes. We were trapped in the dark night, and loneliness came upon us. We stood in the dark Gobi and called for help. "The number you dialed is not in the service area." The panic attacked the flustered heart instantly, and a thin layer of skin appeared on the lips, like oil floating on the water. This is a vast and vast Gobi desert, and the cold begins to invade the bones.
Abandoning the car and returning, we tirelessly walked the night road, panicking, walking in the dark, stepping on the gravel step by step, stumbling, climbing over the hills step by step, rolling and crawling, the bushes cut through the skin, and did not know the pain. At this moment, none of us, driven by fear, made a sound. The weather in the Gobi is unpredictable, the moon has risen, and the bright, gauze-like moonlight makes everything in the Gobi looming. With moonlight and stars, we are no longer alone. In the moonlight, we walked out of the Gobi and got in touch with the outside world. Back in the embrace of the world, we hugged our heads and cried for a long time, the tears in our eyes were finally released.
The rain is still pouring, will the man standing in the rain burst into tears like me?
The expressway passed by Taiyuan City, I passed by Taiyuan City, and passed by Taiyuan's high-rise buildings, majestic viaducts, and vast railway stations. These shivering and cold things are one with the rain, these enduring illusions of presentation are one with the rain, these hard objects swaying in the water like the moon and the mountains, the grass and the trees, gently wrinkled by the wind, Blown down, blown all over the floor with debris. The city surrounded by the rain stands quietly. In the heavy rain, someone should be crossing the road at a fast speed. The rain flows down the black umbrella surface, and the rain splashes on the leaves and flowers. Water sprinkles the road, rain runs down bright, old shop billboards, from the canopy of street vendors, from bright green smoky vegetables, up the factory's tall smoke-smoothing chimneys Down, it flows down from the wings of the plane, the top of the train car, and the steel pipe of the viaduct. The rain washes everything in the city, and the rain also surrounds people, just like fate surrounds people's life. We were caught in the rain on the highway, and never felt time passing so slowly, like ants or beetles crawling on the sand, with heavy clouds over our heads, our eyes covered by rain and fog, we were enveloped in a kind of gray, how much we longed for the weather to be cooler, Brighter, you can even see the sun, even for a brief moment, but the gray sky, the endless rain traps us on the road, forcing us to move forward. In this vast misty rain, I began to miss the Gobi and the desert, the hot sun, the dry wind, the dark blue sky, the clear air, the cracked vegetation, the barren and vast everything in the Gobi. Especially in summer and autumn, when walking on the Gobi, people's heads are roasted black, and the hot sun is blowing, and the bright weather of snow-capped mountains can be seen clearly from hundreds of kilometers away.
