A Walk in the Rain

Myra Karavelioglu

Everything is realer when life is falling from the sky 

Coming down so hard 

Yet, slipping down my skin so softly

Tickling my pores then disappearing 


Flashes of light catch the corner of my eye


“Wake up!” it says 

You are alive


Trees are a vibrant green

Grass is swaying under streams

All greener than before

Finally alive
