Let Glory Rise

frost structure

Let glory rise on wings of dawn,

let hope stand tall when strength is gone,

let love prevail and laugh at death,

let beauty bloom on frozen breath.

    O, Melody, what a insightful poem! You continue to simply astound me. I didn’t believe in reincarnation until I found your poetry. Surely, if you weren’t her in a former life, you certainly have Emily Dickinson’s genes, spiritually or physically—or both! 🙂 Eric

  2. Excellent photo…and a red barn too!

  3. Melody, I really like it when you include that beautiful red barn in the background! Great stage for a lovely poem!

    What an amazing little poem. So much in there and it’s all good! Thank you for brightening our day! God bless you!

  8. Loved the photograph the clouds in the background are pointing skyward and it matches the items in the foreground perfectly. I have never seen clouds do this before. How long have you been taking pictures?

      Our clouds were like this for over a week, when the snow was coming. Between snowfalls, the clouds were lined up in rows – pretty amazing! I’ve only been taking photos for blogging purposes for the last 9-10 months – but only since summer have I learned how to edit and take better shots! I learned from my daughter, and have a long ways to go – but it sure is fun to challenge myself to get that perfect ‘poetry’ shot to write from!
