Sunshine



you bring the sun
through storms & winter
darkness 

steady me
with an anchor of kelp &
kite of starlight

teach me humility 
in sharing your light to
others

blind not my eyes
with rust of world but
with kindness
soft as child's hands

  1. What a lovely poem, almost like a prayer. I love the picture of the "sun" at the museum is beautiful.

  2. I love your interpretation of the marvellous piece of artwork in the image, Grace, especially the lines:
    ‘steady me
    with an anchor of kelp &
    kite of starlight’.
    I agree with Toni, it's like a prayer.

  4. This is like a prayer. I like the contrast between the two phrases--the anchor and the kite. Balance.
