Drenched

“I am the vessel.
The draught is God’s.
And God is the thirsty one.”  Dag Hammarskjöld

Today
rain falls in unrelenting
torrents from heaven,
a rising current so swift
I cling fast
to not be swept away.

Filled to overflowing
I am drenched
beyond capacity,
ready to empty
myself into
your thirstiness.
