heaven.jpgShimmer

Far off in the distance was a glistening shimmer

So faint I nearly missed this flash of light

I watched in disbelief as it flickered like a candle

Dancing in the dark of a pitch black night

I swayed silently and listened as if I’d hear a secret

But it was destine to remain a mystery

Mesmerizing brilliance, what was it I had witnessed as I’d held my breath in awestruck reverie

The clouds so slightly shifted and moonlight lit the shadows peeking through the branches of the trees

The frosted ice coating, like a crystal’s luster will thaw and vanish just as rapidly

So I let myself linger to savor one more second I wished had not gone by so hastily

How would I share this moment, capturing its magic I’d been blessed to witness momentarily

As my warm breath drifted upward, I watched it float so slowly the hazy fog lingered in midair

Indelibly imprinted, these moments I’d remember each an answer to a long forgotten prayer

We all stumble through the motions, groping in the darkness

When life’s misfortunes seem to block out all the light

And then we see a shimmer flicker in the distance

That helps us believe, somehow, we’ll be alright.
