    When it rains letters
    Alphabets
    A 2 Z
    reformed heiroglyphs
    who's to say what
    will spell out our day
    will each and every landing
    fit perfectly into our
    preconceived scripted
    paragraph that we call
    LIFE....
    ...........a poem we all
    write through actions
    and non-actions
    satisfactions and reactions
    Do we have a handle on
    catching letters in the
    ink wells of our souls
    and give birth to manifestations
    that create us as
    best sellers?
    Do we paint a picture
    for the cover and draw
    the reader in to
    ease them or repulse
    them not wanting to look
    beyond our eyes?
    When it rain letters
    do we open our arms and
    welcome our existential literature
    titled "Us" or do
    we run and hide never
    wanting to
    read what may be written.

    i tend to run and hide
    but lately
    i must embrace the rain
    that my life poem
    causes
    catching it in tin cans
    and basins
    hoping that God will
    purify.

    Officially Impressed!

    This captured the variations of writing so well...
    who writes for others?
    who writes for themself?
    who is afraid of what letters may spill to the page...and reveal the existential us?

    Excellent piece!

    I agree, angelic. Thanks for putting this one back out there. This verse reached into the scribes soul and pulled out the heart of the matter.
