A poem and a challenge #writephoto

The  poem below was inspired by the post found at the following link

Thursday photo prompt: Beyond #writephoto


I stand in the shadow of the trees,

As through a colorful rainbow

The sunshine beckons to me.


Two trees make a triangle,

through which I cannot see,

Unless I stare into the gap

at a lawn so brilliant and free.


Should I stand in the shadows alone?

Or find my way around

the trees pressed together

into the morning sun?


Time seems to stand still

While pushing through the wall

I step out on the grass

the sunlight kissing my cheek

as beams of light fall

all around me.


I find I’m no longer alone

as bird song welcomes me.

Darkness turns to dawn

and in the light, I see

the rainbow fading away

its colors dancing through the trees.


The day shines beautiful and bright

with a flag flying high in the breeze

As God reaches out His hand,

Through the darkness to rescue me.


Out in the open I now stand

my spirit flying free

to follow God’s divine plan

and complete each creative task

which has been chosen for me.

I’m here with an update on NaNoWriMo. I tried to publish a post earlier, but for some reason it didn’t work, so I’ll try it again.
I am up to 6303, words so far, almost three thousand of which were written today. I will keep you posted at least once or twice a week, if not every day.
Happy writing, and let’s increase our word count if you’re participating in NaNoWriMo with me.


NaNoWriMo update

Hello everybody,
Today is day two of NaNoWriMo, but as you know I got a bit of a head start a day or two early, because I had to take my daughter back to be with her Dad yesterday, and I was extremely tired from riding all day. Now, this morning, I have written almost three thousand words in a few hours My WIP is up to 6303 words so far. I’ll keep you posted on my NaNo progress, if not every day, at least once or twice a week.
Happy writing and let’s get those words out onto the screen or the paper.
