Like water or rain
We dream. The sea buoyantly moves about with waves and the wind. Fish find the waters too hard to swim around in and head for sheltered spots but the sea lions love to roll and tumble fishing while they are able to be tossed about by the ocean with no competition. The fisherman dream of better weather at home. The fisherman's hut is not for a long stay. A future following the seas out to as far as the eye can see is past the emotional life of the sea to places of dreams. Rolling and tumbling with dreams your mind tends to wander to places once travelled and experienced. You wonder if your dreams could be met as they travel far away from your current life not at sea. Are your dreams out to sea or somewhere a reality could never realise? Are they dreams or just a future place? Rolling onto another time you feel the eye of god is perhaps an inner eye to see and know a future life. Past all the dreams you have ever had and to where your heart may find a comforting place to be is where you rest. Longed for places are always there like your heart can rest nowhere else until you satisfy its need dreaming of a future and taking yourself to that place. The eyes of god hang like stars in the sky at night looking at your future but dreaming for you a mathematical dream of how long it is going to take you to realise your dreams. Oh, the equation only known to god is one and one is two. You are guided by the stars but always roll your ideas out to sea, ideas ebb and flow to the place.
There, their eyes are illuminated by stars and look skyward. The place is vivid by day and stars along with Earthshine are brighter than night. You would not think angels could see during the day but often their thoughts appear to wander. Earth is a place not frequented by their species but looking at the Earth they see the stars and long for a starry heaven. Sometimes, an angel's time on Earth is short-lived and they go to another place like the sea or the mountains regularly without thinking, transported by God. Earthly feet are not what angels possess although sometimes they are human. Places are not really where they frequent like water or rain.
