first day of summer, she awoke with a heavy heart. The dream-world
can be so
unkind. She wrote in her journal. Today, I
am done chasing rainbows.
drifted off to work with dark clouds in her eyes and a storm over the
afternoon, she declared "I no longer have faith in people or the universe. Nothing is
real and I will no longer play the
fool". Then the rain came it poured and she
cried, "great, rain to match
this foul mood', but inside she heard a voice "why have you turned away?". She shook her head and thought, I am no
do you hear me, no more am I chasing rainbows.
Dark clouds of the day slowly parted and the sun peeked with some needed
light. She looked
around and sure enough a rainbow began to appear. "NO", she
am done chasing rainbows". As she
was saying these words her car
follow the rainbow, then it became a double rainbow. Hmm, she
creator is playing with her heart. She
tried to ignore the signs but, that
seemed to continue to grow before her eyes.
"Okay", she said and pulled her car over.
"A couple of photos and that is it". The
rainbow appeared brighter
as if putting on a show just for her. She shook her head slipping back into her car.
Watching the clouds dissipate there was a sense of tranquility, she knew
heart another sign would come and it
did. Three deer came out of the woods just as
her car rolled down the home stretch. She stopped to gaze at their beauty. One came
forward and she spoke to it from her car.
"Why are you here my little
friend". The deer's ears seemed to
perk up as she spoke. I will take one photo, she fumbled with her cell phone. She felt she had stepped into another realm of
time. " OKAY, Okay...but, I am still not
chasing rainbows', she exclaimed. The deer seemed to nod at
her, puzzled she formed a hint of a smile.
You are a beautiful creature that
much is true and
blew the deer a kiss and then he sprinted away.
arrived home, feeling unsettled. What is going on today, this first day of
summer? It was
nearing twilight and she glanced out the window the sky was a brilliant hue. Now,
what? She tried to ignore the call but,
then thought it can't hurt to take a walk. Slipping on flip flops and grabbing her phone
she trudged down the road. The
jeweled sky was magnificent as she captured the moment. Creator really was phenomenal,
she thought! She was about to turn around, but something inside beckoned her to
continue there is more to see. Glancing
at her shoes, moccasins would have been a better choice for the journey, she thought. Onward she went to the sound of flip,
dipped beyond the horizon as she continued her walk. She stopped at
the weeping willow she reflectively stated "I cried today willow, I am no longer chasing
dreams" "What do you
think"? The willow boughs just blew
in the breeze tangling in her hair. She whispered. "I am not practicing balance today" then she wandered away. Turning the final
bend, the heron is somewhere waiting. Sure enough, there perched on a barren branch the heron stood guard. Pausing to breathe in the moment. " You
are certainly a bird that cannot be caged", she said, pondering.
she could not deny the signs sent. So many wonderful gifts were
today but, she felt tired and no one
listens to her anymore. She's just a
fool who believes in mystical and magical happenings. She stood there and cried and the heron
didn't flinch in the twilight air. Cupping her hands over her eyes, she could
clearly see it was time to move on.
Arriving at her road sat one more surprise, a bunny eating some
grass. "Really", she said, inquisitively. You have certainly pulled out your bag of
magic tricks today . Focusing she took one last photo in the fading hint of light.
Silently, walking up the street, she said
'I am grateful for all the gifts, but I am still no longer chasing
rainbows or dreams, it's a difficult road"
night, cocooned in her bed, she closed
her eyes, murmuring "why do you gift me all these wonders, my
wings are broken and my heart heavy" . In that moment she realized she didn't walk alone.
she said...tomorrow is a new day!
