Submitting to the fate of uncertainty🍃

The thunder growled in the distance. It growled lazily at first, like a beast who had just awoken from his nap. She looked up but she saw nothing. Just a sky of gray announcing the arrival of uncertainty…

She drank a cup of the cool breeze as droplets fell to her feet in greeting, announcing the arrival of yet more uncertainty…

The beast growled louder now as if he was filled with an insatiable hunger…

Her heart palpitated and jerked awkwardly. She swore that for a few beats she held her breath and wondered what was this new language that her heart beat with, announcing, preparing her body for yet more uncertainty …

The tree’s danced in the breeze swaying their hips from side to side, slowly and then ever so suddenly, their branches swayed furiously like traditional dancers to the beating of an angry drum roll announcing yet again the arrival of uncertainty…

And her breaths grew deeper …

And her eyes grew wider …

And her palms stuck to her cotton dress as the current of electric light traveled through the sky, her eyes following it closely until it bolted its wrath on something, on someone with a loud slap jolting her limp body to take flight seeking the boundary of a protective cover …

And she stood up from under the shade of a tree dropping leaves of spring from her lap …

And she ran ….

And the sky cracked open its pain …

And cried down on her in rain …

And it drenched her body …

As it nourished her soul …

And she delighted at the wet kisses it left on her skin and lips …

And she cried in unison with its tears …

And she danced and swayed in the rain …

Releasing her fears …

Releasing her inhibitions …

And she spun around like no one was watching…

And she spun around like everyone was watching …

And she laughed and cried as she whirled around like a dervish lost in the Sema …

And for those few moments she felt perfect …

Aligned with nature and the Creator of everything …

And she whirled until she dropped to the ground…

Heaving breathlessly…

Smiling senselessly…

Having encountered the taste of uncertainty has whet the appetite of her soul …

And she craves more …

And she craves freedom from a uniform and conformed world order …

And she has found a type of freedom beyond her protective walls which bind her in with the false promise of certainty…

And she found her freedom in accepting fate, in accepting destiny. She found her freedom in accepting that life is filled with uncertainty …

Haajar…
