i visualize in the warmth of the sun
or in the darkest hours of night

healing is held in the gift of seeing

i see between the wind blown leaves
pause each raindrop as it is falling

everything stops but my breathing

i listen to the silence all around
even in the midst of all the chaos

molecules of life touching gently

i close my eyes for a moment in between
for dreamers will always be dreaming

music notes orchestrate birth and death

i feel the strings of instruments hold me
soft as satin and stronger than webs of silk

healing is found in a moment of peace

i visualize oceans and mountains colliding
creating new life as gentle flowering buds

death can never be the ultimate ending

i see myself walking an ocean shoreline
by the still spray of a wave before it crashes

peace is standing between raindrops as they pause

i see there briefly a place my mind rests
devoid of wars, disease, famine and otherness

healing is held in the gift of seeing

what could be if only for a moment in time

One thought on “Visualize the Raindrops Falling

  1. So many good lines and truths in this! The piece itself is calming, too. Moments in time is all we ever have, and they connect and show us how fleeting all of us, everything is. But to see the truly amazing, beautiful ones, you have to be paying attention to the moments instead of the bigger picture. Thanks for sharing this with us. I enjoyed it very much. 🙂
