Wonderful description of the aching soul who once knew the power and promise of Faith. I like the ending. I like knowing that the touch of the Master is never forgotten on the hearts of His people and they can return to Him, at any time, and become fully restored and refreshed.

I especially liked this line:
"Rain, Wind, Fire bathed her
in a symphony of praise and Presence.
A gentle embrace
of Light and Majesty.
Intimate.
A wondrous place of no words,
no guilt, no shame." Very nice...

Oh, you've placed us so gently into the heart of this searching soul! I especially like the stanza with this wonderful image, "A drop of Rain fell on her face,
her shoulder, her lips.
Just one drop at a time.
Steady, cool, soothing." Beautiful!

You have such vivid poetic descriptions of the travail of this woman. This is beautifully written and I love the imagery here, "held on tight to the Light of Heaven’s promise and … the warmth of His presence and … the Majestic essence of Eternity." Wow!
