Hope & Healing Through Photography and Poetic Expression

Golden Threads

It is my pleasure to share this enchanting poem (below) which was
inspired by my post last week, Collective Dreams « THROUGH THE HEALING LENS ,
and written by David Whitman of Thoughts from the Outdoors.

Warm Thanks to David for honoring
my photo with his spectacular words!
~ Robyn Lee

And she spun the golden threads, dripping from the sun like shimmering jewels…

Silkenly falling refracting and twirling the lights like two rainbows mixed in a loving embrace…

Spiraling down, down down til the ground and trees dripped in emerald and vibrant sapphires…

This is the power of the solar god and a gentle god is she…

Nodding agreeably…

The sun went on glowing…

sinking and falling only to rise and shine again…
