The Reality Of Rain
« on: April 23, 2017, 09:15 PM »
And when it was day, he departed and went into a desert place... ~ Luke 4:42

the reality of rain
is that it speaks to each of us
in its own universal tongue –
billions of angelic echoes
whispered from the heavens;
a steady, graceful cacophony
pattering against surfaces
of this physical existence...
the white noise of a downpour
God’s voice in Morse Code
tapping at the hardness of the heart
gentle nudges pricking at the ears
signaling to inner struggles, hidden pain,
unconscious grievances –

it’s time to let go
it’s time to be washed of guilt,
unforgiveness, disappointment;
allow Love to find its path
to those desert places,
those cracked and exposed landscapes
that have become a balm for the soul

those places long desolate
remember them, nurture them,
make peace with them, release them
in the aftermath there is only silence
a holy, lingering brilliance and
the premonition of spring

I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.
