After The Rain

“After the Rain”  |  Anthony Satori

Not long after the fires were gone, the rain came, bringing renewed fertility to the earth.  Grass began to grow again on the floor of the valley.  Wide expanses of bright green blades began to sprout up, rising literally from the ashes, like a phoenix from the flame, like a second springtime in the heart of December. 

Soon to follow, out from the hills, there ventured a small family of deer, timidly exploring the newly lush landscape.  They explored shyly at first, but quickly grew confident and eager, feeling an intense hunger arise from within them.  It was not long before they abandoned all restraint and feasted ravenously on the freshly grown grass until they could eat no more.

Given even the slightest chance, life always finds a way.

Loving the World

“Umbrellas”  |  Anthony Satori

“My work is loving the world.  Let me keep my mind on what matters, which is my work..  which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished.  Which is mostly rejoicing, since all ingredients are here.. Which is gratitude, to be given a mind and a heart.. and a mouth with which to give shouts of joy.. telling them all, over and over, how it is that we live forever.”

“The Rain”  |  Anthony Satori

“Feel the rain on your skin / No one else can feel it for you / Only you can let it in / No one else, no one else / Can speak the words on your lips / Drench yourself in words unspoken / Live your life with arms wide open / Today is where your book begins / The rest is still unwritten.”
