A Post-Rain Moment (June, 2019)



a post-rain moment

quiet surrounds me

in my enraptured


magenta

white and

dusty pink-orchid colored


living room


during this mid-day

soliloquy


a tumbling

easeful

gentle whirlpool

of cooling energy


whispers

“All is well.”

greenery cascades


pirouetting grace

outside my window


refreshed and exuding gratitude for moisture


received

thunder rumbles

in the distance


bidding a farewell


for now


and indicating a receding

moving

distancing

line of downpour...

birds have not yet taken up

their lullabies


they listen


hushed


by the magnificence

of glistening leaf

as sunlight sudden


and stark


emerges


heralding another moment in the cycles of

this earth...


may we bow are heads to this earth


to this great mother

whose only instinct is


to give and

balance


to receive and

equilibrate


to nourish


to simply exist


and notice these moments

of plummeting waters

thunderous skies


steady

sustaining sunlight

and the quiet of the

bird who


knows
