Rain

sun reclaiming skyI love days like this

when to look out the bedroom window

becomes a gift in witnessing

the dance and symphony

between life and nature

over the pond into the distance

of other lives, mountains, and emptiness.

I sit in awed and marvel

between this moment and the next

curled up on my bed.

This overcast is a reminder

to go within quietness —

the vast stillness —

as it engulfs me in one second.

I am in love.

I am in complete surrender

of cool wetness

and so very grateful that I can be here

to travel the journey between

God and the earth

all while closing my eyes

and whispering a single prayer.

    I like it! The “reminder” to seek that point of stillness. Sometimes there is just “too much” going on to really let go. The illusion that we must do this, we must do that, we can’t let this sunny day go to waste, we must bet busy. Instead, “Be still, and know that I am.”
