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
I hope for that rain in the end…
Thank you ☺️

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!
Thank you Regina. Yes our trials and tribulations are obstacles that we navigate like treacherous terrain. Learning as we go and finding our way through. You have been on such a journey with your health and I hope you will reach your destination soon my dear friend ☺️❤️
