raindrops visited upon my roof to tell a story,
somersaulted thousands of miles from the heavens,
landed with a war cry during a most ungovernable hour.
They trekked across red tiles,
down the sides of stern walls,
through grimy gutters,
delivered forbidden messages,
confided transcendent thoughts…
They’ve seen him on the other side.
