#Poem – really

As the rain pours down outside
I am bothered by my past
Foibles and long to move into
My present without the pails full
Of tears.

I utter a prayer.
Not really a repentance.
I’ve done those and they are
Sometimes overrated.
Not really asking for anything,
Either. Just saying what
Really is
True for me
Right now:

Let this rain wash away
What I no longer need.
May it be the harbinger
Of the fullness of my

  1. I stand beside you as you say these words, and I say them with you. I long to start anew, wish the pails full of tears would wash me clean of any and all mistakes I’ve made, especially any that have caused pain to others. Wanting to let go of the things that I no longer need but that I still cling to (out of habit or out of fear.)

    Then, I remember how each moment of my past has shaped me into who I am today, and I don’t look back with any regrets. But I need to be careful not to let any of my past events define me & not let these hold me back from being 100% of who I am in this present moment.

    Thank you for your beautiful words: a real heartfelt prayer accompanying the mesmerizing and symbolic rain. Let us release what no longer serves us and exhale (with a deep sigh) as we anticipate fresh, creative, joyful energies filling the space that has been cleaned out.

    1. Susan,

      Well, you blow me away with your words; your support; your own tenacity in moving into your own wholeness.

      What can I say other than:
      Thank you.

      Love and blessings,

  2. After yesterday’s all-day rain, today is 60 degrees & sunny in Nashville. The magnolias and weeping willows are gorgeously vibrant. A reminder that every day, every breath is a chance to awaken, begin again, and SHINE!
