Strange rain (English version and french)

Once again—the sky saturates us with is deluge—accompanied by its loud burst of thunder---we’ve grown accustomed to.
How long has it been raining on this city?
Mute and indifferent to what has become familiar—we are only sure that the storms have transformed our city and us.
It is a strange sensation –living in a gorge –an atmosphere is chronic with humidity as we find ourselves with the sons of the months—embracing the brute infernal noise.

Our consciousness compelled us to lie down come nightfall. Wrapped in cloth –we are become saturated by the grounds unceasing stream of humidity, Surrounded by walls of scaling paint—an atrocity; this climate.
We all seek release from this fate…as assimilation into the grey void –paled our smiles—--now a blur… evanescent.


Self-preservation…means accepting ones fate. We knew that. Kinship of shared experiences found us drawn to each other…creating units of our making.
Yet...forced into communities driven by the dying light equated –not genuine fraternity—but mocked relationships with all the defects of hypocrisy.

This morning –the church found the entire city in attendance for the sermon.
So as to conceal the sound of the thunder—an investment had been made to install a large sound system—affording all to hear.

Suddenly, the sound of the rain ceased—leaving the acoustics of the auditorium amplifying the voice of the priest, which filled the church.
Bewildered chatter halted to a whisper.
A ray of sun light had caused the audience to divert their attention—and one by one they streamed out of this forced shelter.
bedazzled by the magnificence of this light, our astonishment intensified…

It was this day I knew what silence meant. To be present and yet so far removed.

Encore une fois le ciel s’était amoncelé au dessus de nous pour déverser ses pluies dans un tonnerre inouï que nous n’entendions plus. Depuis combien de temps alors pleuvait-il sur la ville ?
Nous n’aurions pu le dire, la seule chose dont nous étions sûrs, c’était que les orages nous avaient transformés nous et notre cité. Au fils des mois nous nous étions habitués à ce bruit infernal ainsi qu’à cette sensation étrange de vivre dans une atmosphère gorgée d’humidité. Nous avions l’impression de nous coucher le soir venu dans des draps dégoulinants, les sols ruisselaient sans cesse et les murs des maisons partaient en écailles de peinture. Ce climat atroce était devenu comme une fatalité dont chacun avait souhaité se charger d’une part. Les gens d’ici, s’étaient progressivement recouverts de grisaille, les sourires d’abord s’estompèrent avant de disparaitre tout à fait. Cela avait été notre façon d’accepter notre sort, nous le savions tous.
Pourtant on avait vu la communauté se rassembler, les orages en chassant la lumière nous avaient poussés à demeurer ensembles, mais nous n’ignorions pas que ce type de fraternité forcée portait dans ses origines le vice de l’hypocrisie.
Ce matin là, toute la ville s’était réunie dans la grande église pour assister au prêche du père. Pour couvrir le fracas du tonnerre qui nous parvenait du dehors on avait mis en place au fil du temps, toute une installation sonore afin que tout ceux qui le souhaitaient puissent entendre l’office. Lorsque la pluie cessa et que la voix du père vint remplir tout le corps de l’église, chacun s’arrêta de parler, de chuchoter. Lentement on vit toute la population sortir du bâtiment ruisselant, éblouie par un rayon de soleil qui venait réchauffer notre stupeur. Je sus ce jour là ce que le mot silence signifiait vraiment, nous étions bien présents dans la cour de l’église et pourtant déjà si loin de là.
