Storm Clouds on our Horizon

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Yesterday we had one Huge Thunderstorm.. The sky turned black and heavens opened with torrential rain..Often a storm will creep up upon us as the dark clouds gather in the distance, it isn’t until we look up that we realise the rain is about to fall. We had been enthralled in our work in the allotments when we looked up to see in the distance the mist of rain falling across the valley as the dark clouds had gathered unnoticed as we made our hasty retreat into the garden shed.. 

 

So too in life often we do not see the changes that are around us. 

The same laws that govern the growth of plants oversee our own internal and external changes. We observe, and wonder, tilling the soil of our lives, planting seeds, and tending them.

Sometimes the hard part is knowing when to stop and let go, handing it over to the universe. Usually this happens by way of distraction or disruption, our attention being called away to other more pressing concerns. And it is often at these times, when we are not looking, in the silence of nature’s embrace, that the miracle of change happens.Just as we hadn’t noticed our Sunflowers had started to bloom yesterday until we looked up to see two beautiful heads in bloom.

Sometimes we have relatively short attention spans, and we can easily lose track of time. We may worry about a seedling in a pot with our constant attention and watering for several weeks only to find ourselves enjoying the blooms it offers and wondering when that happened, and how we didn’t notice it.

Nature, on the other hand, has infinite patience and stays with a thing all the way through its life. This doesn’t mean that our efforts play no part in the miracle of change—they do. It’s just that they are one small part of the picture that finally results in the flowering of a plant, or our shifted awareness.. Its often we do not realise that those Dark Clouds which gathered did so for a purpose as they allowed us to let go of a situation or soften our hearts along the way…We have to remember all that happens is only One part of the Picture.. as we gather together the pieces of our Puzzle in this jig-saw of Life.. 

I dug out this poem I posted way back in 2007, It maybe that Dark Clouds are surrounded quite a few people and places right now.. But I know they are there for a purpose and after every storm we see a clearing in the air.. Those storms too in life are sometimes needed so that we can see a brighter new day … I hope you enjoy my poem ‘Dark Clouds’..as I hope for a Brighter New Day in the Lives of All in this World..   

 

Dark Clouds 

Dark clouds may be overhead.

And with them some rain may be shed.

The wind blows, and the air becomes chill

And all becomes silence, all is still

 

A flash of light, Heavens brilliant might

The dance of power, day turns to night.

An angry roar roles across the sky

As the storm takes hold, while passing by.

 

The raindrops fall, slow at first.

Then the Heavens open with torrential burst.

A few streaks of bright white light

But it’s not too long before it’s lost its might.

 

And as the thunder echoes in the distance

The bird’s start singing, awaking from the silence.

The clouds drift by revealing skies of blue.

And all is well in the misty hue.

 

And so in life, we have our troubles

When lightning strikes and anger bubbles.

But we ride the storm, even though there’s pain

For we know that soon the sun replaces the rain.

 

And in the brightness of a clear blue day,

We look back at the storms that passed our way.

The storms of life are here for a purpose,

To strengthen our love and bring with it tolerance.

You’ll never be sure when a storm might give rise.

So make the most of the sunny bright skies.

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
