Pondering the Struggle

Early morning.
Lying in bed with my love.
The birds wake, stretch, sing.
Earth quenching rain pouring down.
Trees dancing in the breeze as their thirst is met by the clouds.
Pondering the magic of life.
I am happy.

Sadness spontaneously washes over.
Life is beautifully amazing
yet such a struggle.
There is so much struggle.
When we get wrapped up in survival,
we don't really live.

Back I fall again.
Back into the moment.
My head rises with every breath of my husband's chest.
His heart beats strong and loud.
The birds are still singing,
trees dancing,
rain quenching.
Once again I am happy.
I am present.
I am alive.
I live.

Take time to live in the moment.
(Key word, live.)

spontaneous sadness, I get that too, out of the blue. Luckily for me it seems to come less and less as I get older, maybe I have learned to push it aside and celebrate the joy instead. So glad you are getting some rain!
