How It Is

From heaven to the earth
Tiny drops of water
Fall silently,
Grasping at each other,
Dropping into creeks as tiny bubbles…
Their journey passing over
Miniature pebbles
And silky sand
Flowing leisurely
As it widens through the coolness
Of snow covered mountains.
Picking up speed
To flow through rapids
Into mighty rivers,
Tiny drops of rain from heaven
Following a path, growing in size,
Growing in strength…
To become one in
God’s enormous ocean.

  1. This is fantastic! Your rhythm and word choices are so vivid. I love it. 🙂

  2. Hi, Tanya,

    Thank you for dropping by and thankyou for your prayers.

    My husband and I had a mini break away this week in The Southern Highlands of New South Wales. We hiked about many creeks and rivers, paddocks, and parks with gardens filled with tulips and crab apple trees covered in masses of cherry blossoms. I went a bit over board with pictures, however, I am sure they will inspire me to write some musings..

    I actually wrote this poem last week before my break….when I look at some of my pictures I can see those tiny bubbles journeying their way along…..I can imagine their delight when they reach the mighty oceans..

    Cami, you always just seem to know exactly the right time to post my sonnets, this one was spot on…..

  3. Hey, I like to think the Spirit is guiding me–I know He’s guiding you when you write! : ) If everyone could see the photos you took–wow!!!! I am definitely going to use some for the fairy blog I’m going to make you after we settle.

  7. Beautiful motion. It’s like our journey on this earth as pilgrims. We’ll each add our part to the kingdom of God. For some reason, that’s what it made me think of. It was so cool and refreshing, reading this poem.
    Pray all is well with you and your family. Blessings.
