Magpie Tales 141: Storm Story

















(love) story 



once there was a

man I knew who 

stood in a blinding

rain storm, walking

the shores of flowing

streets, and seaside 

surf.  without caring he 

stopped to gather 

every tide from the 

sky, and begged to 

be struck by lightening.
