The world is transformed by light
especially after rain.
The rain makes everything seem grey and misty
But it washes the dust and weariness away
And when the sun returns,
everything gleams, fresh and bright,
The light renews the world,
reveals its brilliance.
Water and light: sources of life,
refreshment and renewal.
The soul's seasons are like this:
tears and laughter, water and light.
When the tears come,
may they be swiftly followed by laughter,
Laughter that renews and refreshes,
and reveals the joy,
the inexpressible joy
at the heart of everything.
