A thunderstorm is taking place in our city today
Makes for a wonderful meditation to start off this way
So I settle down into my soul and enter my quiet place
Allowing the sounds of the universe to spill into my space
The thunder is quite majestic and makes its presence known
The rain comes down in torrents gracing seeds that have been sown
The lightning is quite powerful and strikes where ever it will
The storm reminds me of troubles that stir my soul when still.
Though the storms are scary and scatter things around
They are necessary for the growth of new plants in the ground
So too with our souls when trials shake them from outside
They are preparing us for that growth which will take place inside.
