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 ..how remarkable life
can truly be when you stop
and let it ignite the spark in your heart.
