i thot. i’d never see the day.
the day. the sun. turned blue.
the clouds. dark.
and the heavens. began to weep.
lightning. coursing through the sky.
shocking it – to reality.
the roar of the thunder. screaming. deafening. almost…almost, as if. in pain.
like a woman in labor. crippling the earth
fear. gripping. loneliness. aching. helpless. hopeless. darkness.
just. when it looked like. bleakness. no hope. the end…
dead. stillness. quietness
bursting out. from above,trickle of light
spreading. touching. feeling. soothing
warmth spread like joy. no….more like-peace
the earth still. scared. not knowing. huddled.
afraid. afraid to embrace. to look. to experience
then… it came.
the still. soft. silent. voice. saying… softly… embracing. smiling
I’m still here.
I never left.
