deluge.jpg

The water crashed like the end was coming
In a blaring wall of sound.
The flood drowned out my best intentions,
And every "what if" that held me in bounds.
There was an echo in its thunder,
Making sure my surrender wasn't comprised.
Soaked to the bone and still standing,
It took that deluge to realize.
Water rolls our hearts of stone
Past fear and reasonable doubt.
Water changes the course of life
And ends the long-lived drought.
I'll take floods and swift currents
That pull me to the muddy brown earth,
Love is stronger than water,
And readies my soul for its birth.
