28 October 2016
Lightning flickers between cloud layers,
Electricity crackles a soft warning,
‘This will get worse before morning.’
The night sky is alive
While a maelstrom of humanity scurries beneath –
And then –
With a Velcro RRRRRip the sky opens up
And great swathes of water gush down.
Thank you, God, for the rain we pray.
Thank you, God.
