Inevitably and with a great release of energy the sky opens at once and pours down storehouses of blessing greater than human imagination.
I love the rain.
It is simple and strong. It brings life. It gives to everyone in the same measure, and abundantly so.
Long before the rain you had left me. Deep longing burning in your eyes as you turned your back. You had taken all I could give, and still you turned and walked.
Oh I know you so well. How my heart ached for you all this time.
They broke your dreams, did they not. The empty promise of fortune stole your youth. I saw this even before, long before the rain.
The rain stopped. The earth soaked and sighed and sang. The clouds broke open with sunlight. Splashing water in new pools around weary feet, suddenly I see him. Can it be? Yes, it is you! Muddied deep-red you are returning to me.
