The water sends ripples up my spine
as it cascades over the mountain side
blowing the winds of time,
where the sediment of layers are imbedded,
telling stories of historic times.
I absorb each message like a sponge,
and hear the whispers,
that impart wisdom from sages,
blowing the winds of time
as though they were standing by my side.
Truth never escapes us as we ride the winds of time
and climb the mountain treasures that erode one by one.
We are the same particles from which they came
blowing winds of time,
never the same, returning to ash
each one of us united,
where there is not time and space.
It’s been hot as bejesus here the last few days out of nowhere. Last night at 9 p.m. I went swimming in the pool and I wrote this piece. My husband said “let’s weed wack” and I said “no it’s gonna rain”. He said there was no way it would rain. Sure enough at 5 a.m. we had thunder and lots of rain and it’s raining on and off all day. YES! We are so in need of rain right now. The fires have been better in California this year finally! Soooo happy.
It’s all or nothing for all of us around the world. My heart goes out to those that are struggling with flooding!
Have a beautiful Wednesday!
