Through Any Window

Through Any Window

Through a window
Raindrops fell silently
Pooling in miniature puddles
Between cobblestones
Water gently washing away
The day’s grime

Reminiscent of how, in quietness,
and behind the scenes of everyday events
The universe repairs and renews
A flower with thirst quenched
Dry, barren fields ready to receive seed
Dirt slowly becoming mud and disappearing

A metaphor for life that sometimes
Stops you in the tracks
of confusion and hesitancy
Wondering what has sullied your life
On this day, and why
Soon a cleansing rain will come

Revitalizing, restoring and reenergizing
Freshening all it touches
Life’s problems coming clean in the wash
Forgetting easily what had saddened
and temporarily paralyzed the soul
Life goes on

    This is a beautiful poem! As I continue to improve and pray for complete healing of my left leg, my emotions are all over the place. But, I know my Redeemer lives, so I am encouraged by your wonderful words that restoration and reenergizing are on the way. And yes, these painful days will soon be a memory only, as has happened with all the trials and tribulations of life so far! Thanks for the reminder. I needed it more than I knew!
