Holding onto the Light

Holding onto the Light; 2014; 22″ x 15″; mixed media: watercolor and pastel.

Roots tuck under ebony blanket.
Tree-top, reluctant to sleep, teases black sky,
clouds swirling heavy, mounting high.

And in the space in-between,
branches cradle last light in tender arms,
as if tearfully crooning, “so long…”

But when creeping night looks the other way,
they stealthily syphon those silver rays
into secret stashes,
burning bright and clandestine,
‘til morning once more arrives.

    • Ah you are so encouraging Jody! I feel certain God put you on this earth to keep me encouraged. J Please do come visit Colorado Springs sometime. I am certain we would have a very long soulful conversation. Thank you so much for the honor of your re-blog!

      • Definitely. A talented writer can work with all of the energy in the room, and any object around them. Inspiration is such a beautiful thing.
