I wrote Forgotten Beauty 2 weeks ago at 6:17 am, before I was aware of the now highly publicized Eclipse today, August 21st. I woke this morning to the loudest thunderstorm I can remember in a long time. I have many writing’s held tightly in my worn out, faded green writer’s journal, most may not make it onto this blog but this one I felt appropriate for Eclipse Day!
When the sun shined
There was darkness
Dark covered LIGHT
When it rained
I drowned in a sea of sorrow
Never understanding why
Standing in a room filled with people
I couldn’t have felt more alone
When I thought about life
It was overshadowed by death
Fear took my SPIRIT
It wrapped around my soul like a vine of poison coiling around my very existence
Through the pain, I forgot BEAUTY
The solar eclipse on my sun lasted a long time.
The storm built over time
And my soul went into hibernation
BUT THEN LIGHT STARTED TO PEEK THROUGH…..
