dusk arising

surface tension



when all around has become dark
and the enduring spirit wanes
a ripple of sunlight lifts the spirit
a friend drips a gem of healing kindness
breaking the surface tension of despair

    Beautiful and oh so true, what a small ray of sunshine or love can do. Thank you for the wonderful thought of the day!

    You catch the essence of the waning spirit being lifted by wonderfully healing kindness - so emotive it brings tears to this reader who can only imagine the dark of despair's surface tension. Another masterclass in penning it just as it is dear friend.

    It only needs one word from a friend to raise you from that despair d a.

    A perfect poem

  • sorenbarrett

    Like an ember that glows, hope can be ignited to blaze anew with the smallest breath. A wonderful thought that gave me pause.

    So simple - apparently - but so brilliantly crafted. Thanks
