Humming




In the light, shadows seem less frightening. There is interplay, give and take, dancing to the music of faith, humming through the places where we touch.

Will we remember this as the sun sinks beneath the horizon? When we flutter and drift in pieces, petal by petal torn apart? There may well be a rising of fear as we each descend, broken, alone.

When we become a carpet shriveled atop the soil, perhaps we’ll shiver and huddle close again in the chill night air waiting for the rain. Surely then we’ll fully understand our true unity as we merge with the soil.

Shadow and light will no longer seem so startlingly separate, and neither will we. The music of faith will hum quietly, audible only to those who choose to be still, rest an ear on the ground and listen.

  10. Love how you brought shadow/light into interplay with your faith, Laura. So graceful, not preachy, just the way the pastor's wife likes it!

    I have a form of tinnitus (says the doctor) that gives me sky-high pitches, whispering in my ears, all the time. It gets more intense when I write, this holy hum. I told the doctor it was the Holy Spirit, and he asked me if I was still on my psych meds.

    I switched doctors. Peace, Amy

  15. Good afternoon Laura!

    It's already / again late here in good old Germany and it's difficult for me to keep my eyes open. That's definitely the sign (?) --> the signal (!) to go to bed soon. But before I'm going to do this, I just want to send you some warm regards from Germany. And from Italy (if you like). Some minutes ago I posted some very special flowers I took recently in the garden of my resort slightly above Lago di Garda / Garda Lake in northern Italy. Are you nosy? Yes, you are! ;-)

    Enjoy my photos (if you like). But even more important: try to enjoy every single moment of your life (if possible)!

    Sleep well, err, no, have a great afternoon,

    Uwe.

  32. Such are the questions raised each spring, even as we roll into summer. Will we ever fully embrace a season without having thoughts of the following impending seasons?

    Nicely done, Laura.
