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!

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.

Beautifully written! It's so easy to neglect or even forget about nature, but we're all apart of it. We are reflected in each other.

Adventure is sure to come. Kathy while reading this prose i can imagine everything in so real. Absolute beauty and wonderful imaginary. I love rain. Yes, life growth is different with each season with live, yet we realise the similarity in much. Great work my friend.

Kathy,
The fact that we as humans are part of the landscape and the earth is highlighted here in your poem. Nature's cycles and vicissitudes are reflected in our lives and It's great to see that expressed in verse. There is something bigger than us that we are nevertheless a part of, and which we participate in. I wonder what it is ?

The moment life starts.
The continuing journey as life sets its course.
At times the parallels are the same.
But change is what it is.
Everyone has a destiny.
But sometimes that destiny isn't the chosen one.

I have always loved the natural cycles of life, as it mirrors our own phases of growth & dormancy. You've painted this with an amazing tapestry where human tendencies & natural phenomenon dance. I love the way your message conveys a powerful beckoning to this other person/creature sharing in your dance of nature. Really beautiful read! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
