As often as I can,
I leave the confines of the town
to get out into the country.
Yesterday, I was greeted by a golden mist!
The surrounding fields and hills and mountains
were hidden from view.
Yet the sun, which was so close,
gave a lovely golden glow to everything.
The snow barriers are still up,
but so far this winter, they have just received sunshine and a little night frost!
A farm comes into view
and I like the pictures that the sun and mist are painting.
I enjoy them just as they are
without wanting to see beyond.
So it is in life,
I sometimes put up protective barriers
for things that never happen.
I want to see clear pictures
of what lies ahead
I like to feel reassured.
the mist told me
All is well
and just as it should be
and I could tell that the hazy views
were filled with sunshine just waiting to come through.
when we can't see clearly
it's good just to wait
and be with that moment
until the whole picture comes into view!
