Surrendering to the Light
Dark and dingy on this misty day,
Soul searching in the weathered decay.
Once colored gems found among the green,
Soon all is gone to a barren scene.
Quiet melancholy heavy in the air,
Tears rush forth while heartache is declared.
Let the grief well up, spew and flow,
While the water washes me clean as I let go.
This wearisome heart must not yield to the disdain,
Surrendering only to the light and a restful peace regained.

I am thrilled to be back blogging and writing again. It has been over 4 months, and I am feeling healed and much better. I aggravated an old back injury, had vertigo and then blood pressure issues (not related to the vertigo).
I started this poem when life had me down and the weather seemed to amplify the sentiments. With this rainbow last week, on a particularly warm November day, I was remembering what is important in my life if I am to live it to the fullest even on the darkest days.
I am joining in with Poets United for their weekly poetry link up for poets who blog.
I leave you with a few additional words about Surrendering to the Light. I welcome you to download the photo and share it.
