The Visit

Written In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Zone

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 101 – Moving on to this week, here’s an image prompt….

As a grown man looks into the conical zone

of his mind’s memories captured with silhouetted shadows

filled with the pain of his early childhood traumas

he remembers a frozen moment in time as a young boy

seeking purpose and waiting for an answer, he 

stood still holding the lamp switch and it was then

that he heard from two angels appearing as airplanes

and they began to speak this message to him 

that would forever change his life:

 

“In order for you to fly My son, you must turn on the light

to chase away the dark shadows of your past, and move forward 

into the plan and promises I have waiting for you.” 

 

The boy then, although fearful turned on the light as he

was instructed and the shadows were chased away and he

filled with the faith to move forward into the plan and promises 

to live beyond what his imagination could ever imagine!

Spring's Sweet Nectar

Young child watches

in wondrous awe

as the hummingbirds hover

to drink in the joy

of Spring’s sweet nectar

that caused the warmth

of the sun to settle

in his heart while

listening to the angels

sing Heaven’s lullaby.
