A response to Nathaniel Lee's "Prayer Upon Crossing the Highway" in Mirror Shards.
My scene, "Rainy Day Prayer":
Though I sit under the eaves on the porch, I smell the rain drops of evil on the wind, I shall not fear, for You, Lord, are with me. I've felt the golden sunbeams from your cyclops eye warm me on other days when the bristling clouds were otherwhere. Your mighty claws have brought my humans to me and the strong talons bring them back when they stray. Your nemesis, The Cloud, cries acid tears, but I will be strong. Guide my humans to open the maw to your heart.
In thee I pray, hear my purrs.
