On Clouds and Sunshine

by Rita Aiken Moritz

 

Surrounded by the clouds above, dismayed

by swords that pierce me to my very soul,

the drops of rain were echoes from a heart

that in its fragile state did not feel whole.

 

I longed, as did a king from long ago,

for wings to fly me far away from here

and to a place where peace and rest are found;

but more than that, a respite from my fear.

 

Then I upon that silver phoenix soared away

and looked amazed at white clouds so reflective.

I had to ask the Lord what made them change.

He answered, “Child, it’s only your perspective.”

 

For on the ground, surrounded by the rain,

with vision limited, I see my pain.

But I can know the sun shines way above,

and I can rest in God’s unchanging love.
