If you want a miricale it has to start with you.


It starts slowly
with a tap, tap, tap
on my dirty clear window pane
I look out
it’s breaking midnight
Tap, tap, tap,
a slight smile
touches my lips
it was a friend calling me out
How could I resist
the impressive temptation
I open my window
a cool burning wind
blows my hair from my face
Water droplets
land all over my albino skin
Like soft kisses
stinging,
I feel it,
the hard water
and stick my head
out the window
I hungrily thirst
for what I know is coming
The rain is inferior
But increasing in size.
I cup my hands
and reach out and gather
the translucent liquid
in my opaque hands
I bring my hands
to my lips,
the rain softly shoving
its way down my throat
A sudden small wave of rain,
gallops slowly
towards me shifting its direction
It’s a short stream
and it rakes my skin
but the pain feels intoxicating
It’s furious
and pounds on the rooftop,
trudging quickly through the gutter
The pounding
like a giant walking
to find and eat me
or maybe it’s the BFG
coming to give me a fantastical nightmare
It’s the witching hour
no superstitions here
The rain comes down in buckets,
but I keep my window open tight
The hateful rain is my friend.
I see the unmovable trees
weighed down by such force
and the smooth disturbed surface of the pond
awakened
A chorus of waves
brought on by rushing water
The rain comes down
in clear sheets it is
the sign that
God
is watching over me

Nature can tell so many stories. It can show you the past and the future. It can be the signs that let you know that you're going to be alright.
