Unexpected storm


He was expecting the storm
when it arrived, almost
suddenly, without portent or
warning, simply arising
in front of him. He held on
as it raged, tearing at his skin,
sharp nails with stinging points.
They found him there, still
holding on. He did not know
salvation was in letting go.

I'm loving this one today, Glynn as I find myself again invited to let go of the way I thought things might one day be. Thanks.
