From the top of the canyon

“It’s all about perspective… From the top of the canyon the river looks like a snake, and from the bottom of the canyon it looks like a cascading body of jewel-blue water.” ~ L.A. Golding

As daylight yielded to the dusk

As daylight yielded to the duskss clwd srf
With nightfall yet to come,
A ghostly apparition surfed
Before the setting sun.

Was it a sign of past events,
Of battles false and true?
Perhaps instead a harbinger
Of deeds we’ve yet to do.

We cannot know its meaning
Though a few will always try.
The answers lie within our hearts,
Not written in the sky.

See their wings

“Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well.” ~ Naya Rivera
