To Know and to Be Known


Whether it be winter rain or summer rain

the green washes me, the rhythm of water falling, dripping

from pine needles. And yet there is a longing

to know and to be known, to be accepted

by the farthest horizon.

  1. Beautiful writing Nicodemas – acceptance is a desire, quiet for some and dangerously open for others. Intriguing words.

    Sorry I haven’t been on in a while, I’m mending from a shoulder injury (3 weeks now) and it’s difficult to sit at the computer to type (paint too). Oh well, it will heal, but wanted you to know what I’ve been absent.

    1. Mary thank you! First, please get better soon and don’t worry about wordpress. I’m always blessed by your comments, and encouragement, so I’m grateful for when you stop by. Wishing you healing and peace!

  2. Rain is the most charming thing on earth really! It’s amazing how one drizzle can fill everything with LIFE! I really enjoyed reading your piece ^_^
    Have a lovely day!
