Precious

This poem was written in response to today’s Daily Prompt.

A splash of water on my face
the beginnings of that which I can’t contain
trickling down to the base of my spine,
down my arms that are intertwined.
Like rocks falling on roofs of tin
so hard the drops pelt my environment;
cover I seek but no place to hide
in the downpour I must abide.
The overcast sky our joys belies
as the rain merciless summer fries;
Engulfed in loud, horrendous ululation
as the Lord brings peace to a war torn nation
caught in the worst of droughts
making even the strongest doubt
God’s existence; was it not His prescription
that keeled this land in desperation?
But, true to His word,
as I’ve been assured,
He ever will be;
yet three and a half years
felt like eternity!
