Nature's Place

Pearls of Clarity

Falling with ease, tumbling, colliding, splashing big soft drops that soak in as they hit and drench in the beat of a wing, cool summer rain. Wonderful wet washing water from the sky. What an amazing thing that is.

Tup, tup, tup on the big broad leaves of the palm trees outside my window. Crashing into green. Leaves bounce as they are hit and rain water rolls down and drips off to explode and soak into the earth below. Life to some thing, many things. Death to others.

Wonder, wonder, wonder. The way things are in existence, how every thing is separate but fits exactly where it is in the web of form and function that is nature. Reflective of the vitality below, above the formlessness that powers it all.

And here I am sitting on top looking ‘down’ with nowhere to go but back, back home.

Or … What is left to do, for a wet bee.

    Well put, Mark. Nature has a way of reconnecting our souls to our Source as we sit and wonder at the interconnectedness of all that is. It makes the journey back home all the more enjoyable. Fantastic photo, by the way. So clear and sharp. Love the background, too.

      Thanks Joseph. I would say nature is our ‘true’ nature and the way back to it is through the sense of it. The journey is a fiction of mind and emotion, that must be done. You could say nature is our home, our earthly home, and something – or nothing – else is the reality of that, or that is of.
