The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Softening Into Loving Wings

I stand in the rain and the rain
batters my coat, my pants are another matter
they are quite soaked
the rain keeps raining
and then the wind mops up the mud swelling
slowly around my shoes what
would it be like if the rain washed it all away
washed away all the mud and the crustaceans
growing between my toes and
I were to begin to float up with the big
birds of many feathers and their always
soft singing and I softened into
their loving wings
