Startled by You


Don't let the sun go down on your grievances

Be a Tree, He said to me, planted by Streams of Living Water; I laughed inside but didn’t dare say anything out loud;

Be a jewel in my crown,reflecting the lights of the Sun, I cried till the tears flowed a river thru’ my soul, over the dust and crime;

Soar, My eagle,He said, as my nest turned over, losing root and bark and soil,beyond fences and gravity, and shyness demons;

He outblazed the Sun, outran every crooked mile and stone down below where I never knew my inheritance: I thought we were mere animal species,nothing beyond 9-5-9 existence.

  1. Hi Rayla,

    Lovely lines with beautiful photos of the sun. Quite true, we should never let our hopes down, after all that’s what keeps us alive, right? 🙂
