Flow

The stream of consciousness flows

around rocks and fallen trees,

looking at first

for the path of least resistance

but over time

creating new pathways.

 

Every now and thenwhirlpools

we get caught

in whirlpools,

spinning in what ifs,

chasing our tails

until we find our way

back to the stream

and the journey continues

with more questions.

 

God, give us peace

to rest in quiet pools,

basking in the golden sun

of Indian summer.

Leaves in water

Help us let go,

to breathe

the breath

of your love…

 

…until we hear a whisper.

 

A still small voice

guides us forward

to the next adventure.

This post was inspired by Harlon at http://apatientvoice.com/

I started it a while back, and then put it aside to marinate.

Questions swirl around my life lately.

Adventure comes!

I'm an open minded, tree-hugging Christian who loves creation. After 30 years as a substance abuse counselor, I'm returning to my creative roots, painting angels, and writing a memoir about love, faith and perseverance, and how I learned that there are no coincidences.

  8. Yes, JoAnna, sometimes even searching for the path of least resistance opens unexpected doorways… we swirl around the obstacle and find ourselves back in the flow… Grace is amazing like that. Love can work with whatever we give it, to guide us home…
