Philosophy Of Rain

Sitting in a car with
My wife,

Listening, talking

And working
Out our thoughts.

A loving dialog ensues.

Heavily engaged
In a deep topic
About God.

My wife’s feelings,
Vulnerability
And how much
She believes

In a deity that
She’s never seen.

Our car
Transporting
Our thoughts,
Philosophically.

God, is so elusive
That It’s only through
Metaphors that I can
Really see.

While,
Rain flickers outside
Onto the
Windshield delicately.

With rhythmical
Pluvial
Intensity.

Mimicking,

Words that are falling
Into the sacred space
Of our Volkswagen Bug.

Bouncing off
Glass and ears.

Outdoors,

Heavenly
Precipitation,

Is drumming
A soft
Painting
Of droplets.

Filling the blank spaces
Of questions—

Left unheard.
