It was raining when I was driving to Los Gatos Medical Center. For an abdomen ultrasound.
I glimpsed the movements of my organs on the screen. Wondering how harmoniously they must work in concert for my body to function well. As a whole.
At one point I heard the sound of oxygen flowing to my left lung. It sounded funny. A lone instrument from my orchestra.
Raining in November
I wish the rain
would cleanse all sorrows,
sins and impurities
So this world would be purified
and its heart prepared
to celebrate the holiday seasons
in love and in peace!
