An Alternate Reality

Unexpected Rain

Unexpected rain
drips from my yoga mat
and seeps into my walking shoes.

Unexpected rain
drenches my heart
with flooding pangs of loss.

Unexpected rain
threatens my spirit
seeing so much violence in the world.

But unexpected rain
brings unexpected life
to thirsty grass.

And unexpected rain
brings unexpected joy
in knowing that somehow, creation, and hope, go on.
