Dark Clouds December 12, 2010

IMGP2904bThe magic
Of this vast Universe
My imagination

The mystery
Of its ancient stars
Holds hostage
My attention and wonder

Until dark clouds
Pressed down
At the horizon
Roll in

Obscuring my view

And wonder of wonders, when the clouds disperse, we see the stars have been there all along!:-D

The sun is always shining . . . no matter how black the clouds overhead.

Exactly (re your & PTC’s comments above). What is needed is not fewer clouds, but less fear, more trust in the real, as opposed to the illusion. Clouds are real, but they hide much. Until they don’t… 🙂

So true.

While I have many more “sunny” days than I used to (mostly because I focus on small blessings and everyday miracles), the clouds still roll in from time to time, obscuring my enjoyment of the present moment.

The solution is to extricate ourselves from the paralyzing grip of the past, ignore our fears for the future, and reclaim our joy right here, right now.

Thanks, Ruth!

Beautiful verse. Awesome. Blessings to you…

Thanks, Carol Ann. Here’s to maintaining our sense of wonder and awe, no matter the clouds.

Banish the clouds!

nrhatch - December 12, 2010

Yes! “Be gone!”

Oh those pesky dark clouds! Yet sometimes it’s the process we go through to get past them that transforms us- like the grain of sand in the oyster.

Well said, Zoe. The pearl forms around that irritating grain of sand.
