Watch Me Rain (Seasons of growth and dormancy)

Watch Me Rain (Seasons of growth and dormancy)

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

Casting off fear within life seasons.

"

      Watch Me Rain (Seasons of growth and dormancy)   



Watch me rain. This soul is full of racing clouds. Will we rain together, you and I?

     All ready our storm approaches. I tremble and yield my heart beat to yours.

    We are seeds, you and I. Soil and rain living together.


Do you feel the sun warming? We are sprouting.

Snail’s progress, minced steps of tenuous awareness.

If we grow the hiding is over. Are we ready?

To cry, laugh and run with the winds; Adventure is sure to come


Our eyes will be open. Remember, we have sprouted.

    The darkness of dormancy is no longer real.        Is there rest in growth? Not always.


We are caught in our own wind. We sway in every gradual swell against our souls.

 My life is tethered. If not I would be washed away in my own tear drops or yours.


Your eyes look like mine. Mine are blue yours hazel.

 Your eyes are like the Glass surface of water bowl spread.

 

We share its common mirror.

We wave the surface for now, only for now; Not too expansive our winds.

Waving our strength, to the thrum of life, our quiet shadow place is gone.

 We are no longer seeds.


Now is the time to forget the past and simply yield to the future.

Let us throw off our tiny seed home and the darkness of soil’s old dormancy.

It is so confining, now we have outgrown our old seed’s shell.


Even now the memory is fading.

Shall we welcome the new?

Life's growth is different within seasons of our lives but we share so much in common.

This poem gave me insight into my own writing. Two of my favorite characters are friends when they are very young, but a "season" of their lives comes when they grow into lovers as well. Your words are appropriate for the hesitant time when they gradually discover this. Your description of blue eyes and hazel eyes is even appropriate! But my take on the subject is prosaic; yours finds expression in insightful and well expressed poetry. Exquisite!

Your author's note says it all.....Life and the seasons share a certain symbiotic relationship; the seasons come and go, all nature withers and rises, and we do the same as we journey through our lives.

I appreciate the self reflection and wisdom coursing throughout this write. As always, you look at the world around you with clear vision and a wondering mind.

Merry Christmas, Kathy. I hope you have a joyous festive season. Thank you for your visits to my page over the past year.

It's odd... when I read your poems, I have to take a breath and close my eyes after each stanza, so I can absorb all of the imagery. I certainly feel a storm brewing; perhaps the electricity that occurs on the verge of change? Maybe a new relationship or a new start in life? *2nd stanza* mmmm, the touch of a smile maybe, and the question, "are we ready?" holds anticipation as well as trepidation. Ugh, for sure, its always so touchy at the beginning, almost like I want to stay but will bolt at the first sign of trouble *3rd stanza* The delicacy of fresh blooms and buds against the violent torrent of steady growth... will they survive? *4th stanza* isolated against the world, caught in our own, completely submerged by the tidal of love and life, perhaps the feelings are so overwhelming that we need to withdraw ourselves to the safety within *5th stanza* twin souls, mirror reflections of each other, only knowing the difference between them by subtle changes in temperature and depth, moving in harmony once again... *6th stanza* here, is almost a question, "should we take on the world together?" it seems like they acknowledge that they are fledgling, yet there is that youthful boldness that yells loudly from the safety of shelter. *7th stanza* yearning to stretch, to turn faces up to the sky and breathe deeply, outstretching arms, maybe even flamboyantly making eye contact with anyone who dares. We are here and everyone can just eat their hearts out! *8th stanza* With the courage gained through perseverance, we ask "what's next?"

Kathy, well done. I always love your poetry. You take me on such pleasant journeys

I feel the cycles of life you portrait in this amazing piece you wrote. You intertwined nature, and our emotional connections with everything .... the truth is we are one with nature, woven and return to the same place.

Awe inspiring and magical like the seasons. We grow in Nature within the seasons unfolding in love and awareness. Rain checks on the soil that needs refreshment and sprouting of its harvest. Emotions sway in and over the horizon. Excellent write and rendering.
