Singing (?) in the Rain

Mark in the rain

I must have been three and living on Neville Island.
Never did like an umbrella.

Held at Midway

We neither
feel nor hear
the wind;
we remain
dry afar
from rain;
we safely
sit and wait
on board
as the storm
its fury
expends
on New York
where journey
will end.

Tulip after the rain

After the Presbyterian Ecumenical Advocacy Days cruise,
which did indeed last only three hours – sorry Gilligan –
we returned to the hotel.

The rain stopped.
Its aftermath remained.

View from the bus

We took a bus to the boat for the Presbyterian cruise
during Ecumenical Advocacy Days.

It rained.

A stormy night in Manhattan

Above the howling wind
do I hear the
cries of sisters and brothers
abused,
violated,
neglected?

Amid the pelting raindrops
do I see the
tears of sisters and brothers
brutalized,
exploited,
forgotten?

And if I hear,
and if I see,
do I
react,
repent,
respond?

Under a grey blanket

A grey blanket
envelopes the airport,
the constant drizzle
enhances the atmosphere –
the dreariness exceeded
only by my mood.
