There are days when clinging to truth is like capturing bubbles…
grabbing at wind,
watching each perfectly clear,
round beautiful bubble rise-
high out of reach
reminds me of the fleetingness of my life
I gaze skyward
feet firmly planted
I long for that which is out of my reach
grasping the air
I feel the breeze and ponder,
I know not where the wind blows,
yet I know the Spirit
that moves the wind.
yet this cloud refuses to leave me, chases me down
I refute the darkness that longs for me
bubble bouncing off leafy tree limb
until the sudden
I stare upward at nothingness
pondering the meaninglessness of life
the vastness of the universe
and one swooping gust that allows a gasp to escape me
and a giggle,
and I am all small
little girl in awe
to the wind
while dancing with the
yielding completely to the presence
of this momentary beauty
