~ Hard Rain ~

~ Hard Rain ~

At the very heart of me
It rains,
My Lord, please clear my misted sight
That I may view thy divinity
For I am but a humble soul
Bravely minded and keenly aware
Of Mother Nature's earthen depths
As she so obviously
Diverts my attention elsewhere
With Hard Rain
And thinking man's thoughts...

If I have freedom
In my Love of Metaphysics
And if, in my soul, I am free
In my most intimate celestial meanderings
Will not the rain cease?
And the sunlight of thy glory
Smile upon my face,
As I stand here ashamed and grievously worn
By this most human
Whilst evil taunts me as if to say
I am ignorant
Of your glorious
In these seasons
And the rains they bring...

I am oh so prepared my Lord
Wash me clean
That I may linger
In the magic of your gardens
With the sunlight
Of thy Glory
Upon my face...

This is so beautiful, T!  It feels like a plea to God in prayer...as if to surrender and ask Him to help one who feels very much the struggles of living in the flesh to feel the Kingdom of God.  There is a humbling acceptance felt too .  I know your life is full of hard rains from your health struggles and pain.  I am sorry you hurt.  But you are on the right track to seek God amidst your seeking in this world.  This is such a personal part of you, that I had to pin it.  Love n Hugs, C
