Rain #360DaysofSymbols

Day 17 of 360 Days of Symbols. Today’s symbol? Rain.

The ghosts only come out on days of rain. The rest of the year they are hiding and silently, darting between shadows and light, a pocket universe were only the spirits exist. Days of rain, on the other hand, are threshold days. Days of the wobbly realities. Of a time when the skin  the universe is permeable, bruised, ready to bleed through skin and shirt.

The ghosts are not like what you expect them to be. When they walk they walk sideways, against walls and buildings and sidewalk. They exist like two dimensional beings. Living cartoons. Moving around and through you.

They contain memories of the dead inside. When they speak they only whisper the past.
