Today's word is RAIN (very appropriate as heavy showers forecast on and off today in my part of the world).
Instead of using my own words, I clipped a page from an old We'moon diary:

To Become the Rain
Now, now we must become the rain,
letting our bodies sink into
the parched earth, filling
every crevice with listening
so great that flowers
bloom where our bodies lie.

Look up at the sky and shout
prayers of thanksgiving
that cause
the heavens to join in,
raining down sweet mercy.

There is no choice anymore
but to lie still and sink in.
We must moisten the ground
of each other
with our own sweet essence,
showing the rains,
by our example,
what it is to flow down,
gathering strength and unity.

What is it to love one another?
It is to belly down and
become the rain.
That way
the Earth may remember
and so share her own heart
which beats in-sync with
our own.

I thought it tied in rather well with yesterday's word, Blessing 😊
I love that it so happened there's a see-through page here in the journal I'm using, as you can the image on the next page, as through frosted glass...
It's just clipped from a magazine (no idea which), and the tape across the top reads 'cheer up'. A lot of people don't like the rain - and it IS annoying when one's organized an outdoor event, and it pours down - but having lived in Kenya and California, I can honestly say, rain IS a blessing - those parched lands cry out for it!
Your thoughts? Comment below or here in the FB group where wonderful interactions are happening... Blessings are indeed raining down! 💦Do feel free to join any time!


  1. Rain here, too! Line six of that lovely poem... shouldn't it be "where our bodies lie"?
