The above photo was taken in and Orlando, Florida shopping center parking lot last week with my pocket digital...what I would not have given to have my long lens with me that day....


On Wings Of An Eagle
 
I soar with eagles; I reach the fringes of a new heaven, and I taste the sky.
I carry with me on renewed wings a certain hope as I reach new heights.
I discover the thrill of being alive, and though I am an eagle, my eyes failed to see.
I had crashed myself against walls of doubt, but now thanks to a simple butterfly I am free.
 
Darkness falls fast behind me as I climb...climb ever nearer the golden bright sun.
I see the shadows that once consumed me melt beneath my wings.
I feel not that the race in which I had run is lost, but now by grace it is won.
 
I soar with eagles; and I dwell in magical gardens with flowers in full bloom.
I dine in sweetness amongst these gardens and beautiful things.
And I rest my spirit amongst flowers and butterflies near the warm / cool silver springs.

Eagles, butterflys, frfeedom, bright sun all symbols my hubby loved. Grace comes to us all in the end. Magical gardens abound with us. Springtime flowers cheer us up. Another winter is passing and poems like this rest my spirit as you say. Thanks for this inspiring write.
