A Parable...



The music has always tamed my soul,
yet God has grown me whole.

I listen to the rain drops falling from the sky,
a moment in time before they hit & die.

Still they water the growing,
giving life a memorizing thought of unknowing.

A time & place far away from the worlds ways,
as I look into the distant rainy haze.

This as the clouds hug the mountain,
sharing with it the places it had previously been,
a parable I send.
