My Soul Shines Brightly

Tonight my soul shines brightly

At the promise of seeing

The sun rise on an autumn day

When I may finally see

The harvest brought to being


Through a hard, bitter winter

Ages and ages long

At times I thought

I’d never hear

Spring’s sweet lilting song


Then springtime came into bloom

And grass began to grow

Another age and a half

I waited and watched

In the warm sun all aglow


The summer hit

And I’ve worked hard

To feed and fertilize

While each new budding fruit

I’ve reveled in and guarded


And now the time approaches

To see what has been grown

Will autumn’s fruits

Of all I’ve done

Have their abundance shown?


I’ve waited patiently with hope,

With faith, with joy, with love

Yearning to taste the juices

Of each soft tender fruit

And the dulcet things thereof

  1. I agree, when living life one tiny step at a time, the world slows down to a crawl and you enjoy more of the smallest parts. May your fall bare great fruits and wondrous colors.
    Your words are evermore so elegant. Thanks for your beauty. 🌹
