   Just took more photos of the river…

   the river and sound have such a hypnotizing pull on me…

season after season

   year after year…

day after day

Distant Tugboat…Cloudy Sky – Photo by Toni Roberts

 

my son says

but ma…

you keeping on taking the same photo

over and over again…”

   he does not see the subtle changes from photo to photo

from day to day

season to season

the shifting shadows

the shimmering light

seasons marked

by the

absence or presence of sailboats on the sound

 

the stillness or gentle flow of the waters

the tugboat far off in the distance…

the mood of the sky

the shifting shapes of dancing clouds

no…

he does not see the subtle differences

from year to year

for he sees only with eyes

while I see with heart and soul

this river and sound that are kin to me…

this river that has held-rocked-soothed-nourished-and-healed-me

through twenty-four years of

pain

sorrow

loss

agony

and the

deepest-of-soul-stirring

joy...

no…

he does not see this

gift-from-the-“GODS”-view

with

   eyes-of-love

  as I do…

for it is

my

life itself

that is

reflected in the waters below…

that an

and then immediate 

OUTFLOW

of

   DIVINE LOVE…

is the

ANTIDOTE

to

FEAR

ANXIETY

and all else that would do one

this

miracle-making

amazing

know-it-all

do-it-all

omnipresent

omniscient

omnipotent

PRESENCE…

that permeates all that is…

 

this

mystical

mysterious

PRESENCE

that I cannot control…

and do not understand…

 

it is to

THIS

 

the

UN-NAMEABLE 

that I now

surrender

allowing

IT

   to possess me…

body

mind

   soul

 

permitting

IT

to

flow

in

through

and

as...

all

that

I AM

letting

IT

manifest

as

FORM

in this

3rd dimension of being...

according to

IT’S

WILL…

and

IT’S

PLAN…

not

   mine

Dawn Rising Over The Wetlands – Photo by Toni Roberts

this

LIFE

is indeed a

DELICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…

in which we

HUMANS

are

BOUND

one-to-the-other

and

to the

SOURCE

of our

   BEING…

in ways we’ve

YET

to

COMPREHEND

 

 

 

 

 

Today…In A Flash Of Realization…I Understood That…

LIFE

is not a

but an

INTRICATE DANCE

of

   INTERDEPENDENCE…
