I have so many thinks about how I feel today. Nothing is striking me as more than a facet of the expression of it. Thinking of that phoenix again, absolute pain beyond measure and at the same moment joyful rapture, explosion of expression without bounds, before resettling. So many things to notice at once, joy, pain, suffering, creation, destruction, which is which? Do they feel any different? Does it matter? Must I be passive? Must I act quickly? Is my help needed in the helpful word granted me in a book, in the song of unmaking, am I unmaking “I”, am I making a new “I”? lol See now looking at it this way isn’t feeling quite so heavy, but in a minute I might be back writing in flame wishing escape instead of dancing with it.
One drop of rains falls. It can be ignored. More gently patter down. I look up (do you?). A teasing pause. One drop, two, a rush, a dance The mind moves, the body follows. A weaving dance, feeling joy, creating downpours of expression, rising, twisting, and spinning across a pattern of life simple joy. I smile, inside and out (do you?). Come to ground. Refreshed by self after converting gift of rain. I sit, peacefully (do you?). I watch the gift of ground.
