The Rescue

Flash Nonfiction

When fear and ignorance had me in their grip
and life felt like a sinking battleship

I sent many a prayer
filled with utter despair
to the Lord above
Why were the water so rough?

And the Lord above
sent me some tough love
along with a sweet gentle kiss
from the Holy Dove.

It is because of this
that I did not drown
and the waters, ever so slowly, calmed down.

The oracles do not understand
How on earth, did I reach dry land ?
Certainly, miracles do not happen to you or me !
