the rains came down
and we huddled,
cradling our pain and confusion
this was not the promise.expectations drowned in mud,
reality in lockstep marching
a red line slowly strangling
when all was lost,when we were lost,
that’s when the rains came down.
and the Earth thundered.the Heavens split,
Holy Fire engulfed
a man-made Tree,
leaving only bitter Ash
cleansing ashmixed in mortal silence
as the Living Rains came down.
