    The beauty often missed
    when we are sorrowfully dismissed
    into the throes of melancholy...
    I saw a rain cloud yesterday
    and sprouting from it were lovely streams
    of shadows and the light of day
    lustrously peeking from behind
    if the sun is truly there
    it cannot really be hidden
    it will always be seen any where
    despite the veil, it's that strong,
    the rays of truth and all that is good
    hold brilliance so deep that it cannot, it will not
    be contained, even if evil feels it should.
    And although it can be hidden for a time,
    the essence of it cannot be denied.
    My time is now, and I will act upon it.
    God knows this is true, if you pray, he will abide
    And he lives and breathes with me, along
    with the sunshine that refuses to be subdued.
    The light amazes me, makes my entire spirit smile,
    it is my sustenance, my "soul" food,
    in this, the wilderness of my mind.
    No truer spectacle will I ever find.
    There is beauty all around me.
    All I had to do is to look up, to clearly see.

    Thank you Nita, those stars are quite a sight to behold, no matter how often you see them, aren't they?
    Aww, Sensualreality, that was such a sweet thing to say. Thank you so much young sister.
    Thank you Rich, for seeing the beauty in the upper room so to speak.

    Wow, girl. I am feelin this on many levels. It was cloudy here today, and when it's like that I am always reminded of what it looks like in a plane above the clouds: the sun is always out all over the world - it just gets shaded from some people's view sometimes. Then there is the part about praying in the midst of darkness. I've been trying to perfect this art in 2004, and prayer does work. Sharing feelings with you, sister, and appreciating your work.

    sometimes in the silence of our sadness we
    are able to observe what is so
    blatanly beautiful. I look to
    the horizon and I often marvel
    at how great a creator we have.

    Nice piece.
