And So It Is

And So It Is

Beyond the trees
I pray for peace
the fulfillment of needs
and the abundance of love.

Even shadows look for shelter
existing only where light persists
their beauty is the contrast
we find in ourselves.

Surrounded in the piquant smell of fog
our blindness has no relation to the dark.
Faith is a limitless devotion
that includes more than the Divine.

A human strength
is to use insight as our eyes
touch as our intelligence
and openness as bravery.

And so it is that beyond the trees
I pray for peace
the fulfillment of needs
and the abundance of love.

    Hope springs eternal as faith is tested daily; interesting take on the prompt. I liked the lines
    /surrounded by the piquant smell of fog/our blindness has no relation to the dark/–as Islamic extremists continue to butcher the innocent, painting them & us with the Infidel brush.

      Thank you Glenn for your kind words. Too many hide behind their thoughts of God while destroying the very point.
