What is that shiny silver,
Object intangible,
Spinning toward me?

It may be a bellissimo ball
Of renewed hopefulness
To bounce away my discouragement.

It may be a mellowish moon
Of sought-after rest
To melt away my weariness.

It may be a sparkling sun
Of heaven-sent joy
To spark away my desperation.

It may be an imparted idea
Of my greatest wish come true –
To be inspired away from all faithlessness.

What is that shiny silver
Of heaven’s love tangible,
Spinning throughout me?

  1. I just love this. What is that shiny silver? I think the poem speaks it well. whatever it may be, it makes me smile. :)

  2. Do thoughts have color? Perhaps it is silver and is an idea or maybe hope for the future. Could it be God's answer to your prayer spinning your way? Could be !!


I would rejoice greatly to receive a comment from you, thanks.
