A Glimpse of The Ineffable--By Shannon Kelly--United States

A Glimpse of The Ineffable 

Navigating home, I see His finger touch
The clouds above, illuminating the sky
In a magnificent array of gold and periwinkle
Light orbiting the Son, settling on my path
I drift through blessed clouds
Unable to see the road
Regardless, I trust the golden glow
Solace sings triumph beyond the mystified fog
Adversity thrives only when fed
A journey lies ahead
Not easily traversed
But I cherish each step
In every breath
I absorb my space and time
For it matters not what lay ahead through the fog
I trust
That a nurtured present
Will reap well beyond what I can touch
