FLOOD IN THE TIME OF CORONA

I listen to the rain falling steadily all night long – the caprice of the gods or the tears of angels? Raining it seems for 40 days and 40 nights or since the beginning of the Corona.

ANGELS GATE

        I used to look for signs, beg for signs. I talked to the moon, the stars, the setting sun. I looked for green flashes on the horizon. I listened to cooing doves, watched lingering hummingbirds, marveled at dancing dolphins. Looked for all of life’s metaphors. When I hear that during surgeryContinue reading “ANGELS GATE”
