Be-ing

Elusive, grey sky,

Background of countless raindrops;

Never ending flow.

Sometimes, like an ineffable puzzle, my mind rests in the midst of an incomplete picture, with the past on hold, and the future on pause. Time seems to be a superimposed structure upon eternity. Mood becomes everything – the ultimate color of an endless reality, never changing, always experienced from the center of being. The rain is a reminder that everything happens in the present moment.

Worry dissipates, fear diminishes, and peace reigns in the stillness of the heart. A meditative experience that blends into the passing hours of the day. There is no room for regret, nor concern for tomorrow. The potential of renewal exists in every moment of time, that passes unnoticed, because there is no linear reckoning of time as such. As is written, G-d placed eternity in the heart of man (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

Soul Cleanse

Soul Cleanse

Renewal is at hand;
despite those few occasions,
when my awareness slowly unfolds,
as if by restoration from Above.
My scattered self, arranged
into something that resembles yesterday’s me.

Sometimes,
not until my second cup of tea,
am I able to recognize
any continuity of familiarity;
and, so, I wonder, is the rest of my soul still dreaming?
Or, perhaps, fragments of my psyche
have not yet been retrieved,
from Shomayim (Heaven),
where they are still being cleansed.
