Tender limb I cling to..


Tender limb I cling to
you are not stable, I know
you bob in the wind
and I hold on tightly
but I will not move!

I chose this limb
I perch upon
not for its strength,
but for the sight
of sunlight above.

My heart needs this light
and through tempest winds
and stinging rain
I watch for the light.

I could hide in shadow,
but that is not my way
though I could be torn
from my perch
here on this clinging vine.

I will not doubt!
I will hold the knowing
deep within my breast!

and sing
and sing
and sing

for though this grip is weak at times
I can see the light
and it is worth all uncertainty
to know that I may one day see
ah me!
the rising of the sun.

  2. While I love the idea of your site I am not really in need of a new one. This site does me fine. I will however, add your site to my blogroll for others to enjoy. Thanks for your kind words.

  3. Do you? She is a pretty bluebird. Sometimes she hides under her wing, but she still keeps an eye out for the light. (hugs)
