“You are the sky. The clouds are what happens, what comes and goes.” ~Ekhart Tolle
What does the moon represent?
The moon is a feminine symbol, universally representing the rhythm of time as it embodies the cycle. The phases of the moon symbolize immortality and eternity, enlightenment or the dark side of Nature herself.
Cold with froth
Refreshing under the sun
Day to day
But always back
Pulling and pushing
Stronger than will
(Or are they?)
Swim to the light
Like pouring water
Significant but tranquil
Back and forth
To a safe deep hope
“There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope. ~Bernard Williams
“Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.” ~Christopher Morley

“In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form.

Ugh. What is coming? What shall it be like? Will there be joy? Will I find peace? Or does this not exist?
It would be a relief to know so I can plan either way but this is not going to happen. Life comes on it’s own terms and then it’s up to you. Do you want to watch your life pass you by…or not?
I choose “or not”. Even with the Rocky Road sundae served, I am still choosing “or not”. Even with the overwhelming frustration of wasting in a place in time which didn’t know my value. Or is it that I didn’t know my value?
I will not let the story end there.
It’s my time now. To figure out my place in this new world of mine.
The colors are beginning to come into focus and the shadows are getting lighter and brighter. Looking over my shoulder is no longer an act of fear but one to acknowledge how far I have traveled and it reaffirms where I still must go.
