A rainy day

Celebrate

A rainy day

Draws me inward

As I draw comfort from the depths of my inner world

A day of blissful surrender spent

Writing

Reading

Contemplating life

How blessed I am

To have these gifts

An awesome mind

A heart that feels

A vision that can embrace

Differences

And even though before

I lay down with my hurt

Like a wounded animal that bled

And wanted only for it to end

When I faced it new life came in

As the cells in my body

Once again rearranged

To fill the empty places opened

With love and light

And as old pain left

New wisdom came

Like new life comes

With falling rain

  1. I read and liked this last night but was in desperate need of sleep so I didn’t comment. But I had to come back this morning and comment on a piece of writing that touched me, in many ways.
    As a human being, I relate. The rush of gratitude I feel is overwhelming sometimes; I’m thankful for the ability to express my feelings in the written word and for the people who encourage and support this. And I am wary of those valleys, where anxiety and depression warp that gratitude.
    As a writer, I love how you bookend this piece with rain. You talk about how a rainy day drives you inward and then you finish with a line I absolutely love. “Like new life comes with falling rain . .”
    Brava!

    1. I’ve honestly grown to love your heart and soul through comments such as these, Marc.

      I agree its so easy to be sucked down into those negative mind and feeling states. I think being able to express is such a gift, it really is.

      And gratitude yes. so so true Thanks once again for being such a special soul and for your comments and support. Blessings and much peace to you.
