Only when falling on my back did I stop and see the sky… Mark Nepo
Death has knocked me to my knees, with pain reeling me flat on my back. What do I see?
Life stopped, pain intensified, seeing diminished…self absorption encompassed me.
But now, life is starting to flow, my eyes glimpsing the stars in the sky. Comfort, healing, peace, hope, joy, are the brightest stars in my sight. Family, friends, home, laughter, my dear son, twinkle through the dark. Flying, hiking, swimming, biking, sunshine, mountains, streams, owls, hummingbirds, flowers, cross the dark sky with flashes as bright shooting stars.
The eternal sunrise is approaching bringing a bright and glorious day; a day to rise, embrace, love, laugh, serve, as the glow of these stars is etched upon my soul.
