Between the Rainfalls

Lifting my face to the sky

there is the moment when the sun’s rays caress the skin

The glow

it seeps into the bones

warms the heart

A fleeting eclipse

before it retreats into the clouds 

These moments 

Between the juncture of clouds 

amidst the smattering of rainfalls 

They are everything 

Last night I had a date night with my husband. Dinner AND a movie. When he was using he couldn’t tolerate things like this. I remember the overwhelming loneliness I felt, especially on the weekends. Recalling last night, well, the joy I felt…I’s just spilling out of me. 

On our wedding day with our dog

Monday we celebrate the life and legacy of an American civil rights hero, a human rights advocate, a proponent for peace, and a voice of love, Martin Luther King Jr. He said: “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” 

In 5 days, Donald J Trump, a man who scapegoats others; who is hateful, divisive, and corrupt, celebrated by the KKK and white supremacists, will be inaugurated into the office of presidency in the United States. 

Cherish the moments between the storms. And don’t forget to rest up as well, we will need our strength for the fight ahead.

  1. Great post – great photo.

    Reconnecting with my wife has been a journey of its own and a very rewarding one at that!

    It gets better as you will find that you will have a different relationship in many ways. A wonderful thing!
