lenten fast to easter feast...rejoice!!

a very blessed Easter ~ buona Pasqua ~ to all!i very much look forward to visiting blogs i dearly love again now that my internet fast is complete. i have truly missed the beauty of your words, dear friends!this week's prompt for one single impression is offered by sue of sunflower roots...


living water


on high
a pierced cloud
rain coming down
to water the earth
not returning void
but gracing mountainside
rivulets of clarity
pouring forth
filling wells
quenching thirst
for all times
leading to the sea
tidal ebb & flo
washing the whole world
with life

Welcome back and Joyful Easter to you. Enjoyed your poem. I posted some photo's on one of the places where this living water pauses for awhile, Lake Malawi, providing life to many.

The circle of life...in the form of water. Beautiful!

"a pierced cloud" -- what a wonderful image! Such a graceful (full of grace) poem.

I can see this image so clearly. For me it is multi-layered and definitely very attuned to Easter. Such a lovely poem; thank you.

Hi Qualcosa de Bello,
These words you share here are beautiful. They are words that also for me are a symbol of how our own tears can bring forth renewal.
Thank you for dropping by.
Can I ask if you might add my friend Mary to your candlelit prayer list?
Hope your Easter was happy. Welcome home (I think).

I so agree with Zoya .. truly beautiful. Every thing in life need refreshing .. and there are times when a good shower awakens the spirit, and feed the soul.
