Ever mindful but of what and why? Forever comes tomorrow. Hear the song? I don't know all the lyrics but I'll try To let it lead me home and sing along And trust when I am weak that it stays strong.
There’s always something more that I could do. There’s always some small dream to tarry through. There’s always some old treasure I might find In hidden memories. Were they all true That mercy sang with kindness to my mind?
In every case the light will win. Even shadows can’t stand lies. Though nights are cool when days begin Forgive, give praise to morning's rise.
Linked to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge with the theme of “living in the light” and to Debbie Roth’s Forgiving Fridays. Also linked to dVerse Poetics where Lillian is hosting with the theme of “temperature”. I am hoping I can fit the prompt with those cool nights.
This January I hoped to see a tiny crescent Moon in the morning just before sunrise. I think such a Moon is upside down, but maybe it is right-side up as well. Regardless, the mornings this January when the opportunity arose were cloudy. The expected sliver of Moon did not appear.
While waiting to see if the clouds would clear I recalled an old couple. Toward the end of their lives they behaved like teenagers in love. They held each other close even in public. They smiled warmly at each other. They seemed upside down to some of us although we all wished we would have their right-side up love when we were their ages.
For many of us clouds get in the way modestly blocking reality. I’ve learned this January that all that is perhaps the way it is supposed to be. Clouds in morning sunlight also put on beautiful shows. Besides, it is easy to forgive all that cloudiness when I realize they also wanted a happy ending.
THERE'S VENUS, CLOUDS, AND JUPITER. IT’S WINTER, BUT OCEAN WAVES ARE WARM.
