Pondering the Magic of Nature!

Sometimes I get up in the middle of the night, fix a cup of tea, stroll outside and curl up in a chair on my patio... and sitting in the silence of the night, I ponder the magic of nature. I wonder about the oceans and their ebbs and flows... the moon how it rises then sets in the night sky, casting dark silver shadows across the landscapes, then slowly drops off the horizon just before the sun pops up to illuminate and smile on the new day...how a pending storm feels ominous, but in it's wake it washes away the impurities, while it caresses and nourishes the earth.
I too have ebbs and flows...and pending storms within, filling me with fear, anger, disappointment, loneliness, and uncertainty ...casting dark shadows across the landscape of my soul... and just as I feel I can endure no more... I start to weep...my tears stream down my face, washing away my sorrow, my doubts, my pain...a gentle peace cradles me and thoughts of blessings illuminate my soul...a smile begins to crack against my dry tears ...and thoughts of Love caress and nourish me once more...sitting in the silence of the night, pondering the magic of nature...the magic of our Oneness!!!
