What Comes





Pearls strung in the sky
Shine on the dirty day.
A glimpse of what comes.






I took this photo last week. At the time, my dad was in the hospital, very sick from chemotherapy. I wasn't sure he was going to make it, but he did, and is doing much better this week. The photo seemed to predict the fortuitous turn of events.

You have written a wonderful post with the right amount of perspective: even in the dark sky, the hope of the sun peering through makes the picture just a little bit brighter - hope always abounds!

Beautiful sky, it is opening up, getting rid of the clouds. Glad your Dad is doing better.

Hi Cathy, I like your 'pearls' strung so beautifully, peeking out from the veil of the darker clouds.
Happy Sky Looking, thanks for peeking at my St. Thomas sky and poem.

The sky opening up like that and shining bright is always a sign of hope for me!

Glad to hear that your Dad made it through, good luck to him with the rest of his chemo.

I love the way the sunlight breaks through to create just the one bright spot in an otherwise gloomy sky. May your life continue to be filled with brilliant break through moments.

I just hopped over from All Mediocre...

And what a coincidence, I just wrote a post about the darkness and light of the clouds too! So glad to hear your Dad is on the mend.
