There is Light

Posted on



The sun paints for you
In hues against blues
Reflections of great sorrow
You gallantly cope
Through beacons of hope
For sunrises and tomorrows

Let skies amaze you
Daybreak embrace you
Memories warmly whisper
Layers of love shine
Heal in your own time
He lives in your heart, sister


Dedicated to my sister-in-law, Michelle.

  1. Beautiful message of hope and consolation. I know this wasn’t for me, but I needed to read these words too. Thank you.

  2. It’s made even more meaningful by your dedication of this to your sister-in-law, Mish. My emotions came right up to the surface while reading these beautiful words on her behalf.

    • Thanks so much, Gayle…and for a lovely MTB prompt. Any form besides free verse takes me out of my comfort zone,which is a good thing. 🙂

      • You’re very welcome, Mish, and I agree, these forms can add another dimension to our creativity by moving us out of our comfort zone…so glad you joined in.

  3. Through beacons of hope
    For sunrises and tomorrows

    One puts aside for hopes that can mend a sorrowful heart. Hope, the last frontier where expectations are likely to be met!


  4. This is so close to being a prayer without being it…. love it.

  5. A beautiful poem of consolation and healing.

  6. Another beautiful one.

  7. I feel soothed and consoled by your words Mish ~ Its been a terrible week of bad news but I am looking forward to a beautiful daybreak ~

  8. The photo of the sky is surpassed by your words of thanksgiving.
