Many Waters Come Into My Heart

Updated: 6 days ago


Many waters come into my heart... Some as rivers, strong and loud, passing through many lands, moving many rocks, carrying all the sand with it. Some as little creeks, gentle, subtle, quiet, often hidden, flowing under the ground, carrying the memories of its sounds, bringing the touches of the earth. Some as rain, traveling miles in the sky, dancing with the winds, touching the nothingness, embracing the unknown essence of thin air, moving through it all to fall, drop by drop. Many waters come into my heart, sometimes with gifts, sometimes with memories, sometimes as droplets out of thin air... And all the waters disappear into the big quiet ocean of me, a hidden place where nothing can touch, an open space where all can fall into.
