 I stepped outside today and saw the glowing sun

sending his loving rays directly to me.

The soft clouds strolling casually

through the air like oblivious lovers in a bustling park.

 And it ignited the tiniest spark in my heart.

 All of my sadness, anxiety, apathy..

floated away with that sky for that brief instant

and the tiny spark in my tepid heart flickered lightly.


 I sat and breathed in that realization..


A subtle but beautiful sign

sent emphatically from my loving God


A simple reminder remarkable life

can truly be when you stop

and let it ignite the  spark in your heart.
