Pastor’s Pondering 08/18/2021

Walking this morning in the rain, my thoughts explore every nook

Of my mind and soul and flesh, some of them long forgotten,

Others dwelled upon far too much, and I discover once again

The integrity of the whole, the necessity of them all

When they are together, and then, daring to look about,

I see the world different too. The integrity of rainbows

That forget not the storm, the necessity of dreariness,

The comfort of fog, the wonder of light so bright

It makes me close my eyes,

The suspense of unexplained smiles,

The perfection of a single tear.
