Have you ever noticed
a stream of flowing water
‘Where does it come from?
What are its roots?
Why does it flow
like the invisible sky?’
Have you ever marveled and pondered
how the stream comes into being
how it springs into existence?
The surprising and awe-inspiring magical answer
lies in science.
The earth is dry, and the water level in the earth goes down.
The cracks are the thirst for water.
The water table rises as it rains,
it rises, and rises,
and in some places where there are tiny valleys in the earth
the water springs out, flows
the earth can no longer contain it,
cannot hold it within
and it overflows.
Haven’t you felt that alchemy too?
When your heart is full,
full of love, full of happiness,
and you no longer can contain it.
abundantly, gushing out,
and seeping in all your surroundings.
So what’s that rain that would help our hearts overflow
with love and happiness?
Wonder, wonder, ponder
and listen to what your own heart says.
