Trying the Best you Can….


The trees shielded

their ocular limbs

as their sweet but eccentric friend

dropped by….

Falling out of the sky like

a golden stone lit by the

heaven’s own fire…

it was important to remember

that the sun never meant

any harm when it sweated up

our brows in search of coolness…

on the contrary…

we all show love the only

way we can…

And our solar friend

was certainly no different

than the rest of good intentioned

but worried

  1. Aw David…always such a lovely thing to read your work. Lovely photos with even better words. Truly wish you a blessed day. Always:)

  2. David, your poem is very beautiful and very true!
    Very nice metaphor for the sun “golden stone” – wonderful!
    The picture is absolutely outstanding!
    Thank you so much for having shared with us.
    Have a wonderful day, David! πŸ™‚

    heaven’s own fire…’

    Fabulous imagery here…and the photo – wow! Amazing effect you created — can’t believe how vibrant those rays are coming through the tree branches (limbs)! Thanks again David… πŸ™‚

  4. I love how you depict the sun’s coming. Such a pureness and desire to love. And the way sun is accepted as just another part of the collective in sun’s wanting and needs. Very heart-filled. Inspiring and refreshing. Photo is lovely, too. Sam πŸ™‚
