Reasons to Believe

I believe a cloud can have a silver lining

But it makes a personís neck sore

To gaze into the heavens

A hopeful watch from dusk till dawn

To try spot an elusive glimpse of glitter

Always beyond reach

As month after month

Black clouds pass by


Eveningís canopy sparkled   

I watched for a burning promise

To streak the night sky  

A light to wish upon

A sacrificial plunge made

For believers


It is said those who wait

Know a patient kind of love

Silver lined expressions made

Hearts burn brighter as they fell

Idle hope became reality


Fine diningónourishment for hungry souls

Endless morsels of sugared bliss

A smooth taste of silver

To satisfy tongues

Smiles nip wakeful thoughts

And tickle us while we sleep

Heaping bowls of seasoned laughter

Listening hearing understanding

Absorbent souls dry salty tears

Recycled as clear droplets of joy

Devotion ever near

Trust without fear

Our presence felt

As arms reach for one another

Always and forever

Reasons to believe


We drink milky moonbeams

As sky diamonds twinkle in our eyes

Silver hearts swallow soothing clouds

A moonlight connection

Heaven within

Hi Barbara,

So loved reading this that i had to read it a second time...  You write so well, it makes the reader want for more!  And as i perceived the contents of this delightfully crafted verse i think that in some case's we do indeed dream to much and do to little. 

Greetings: Peter

When I read  "I believe a cloud can have a silver lining But it makes a personís neck sore

To gaze into the heavens"  I thought, "silly woman, don't you know you can see heaven on earth.  You don't have to look up.  It's right in front of you and inside your heart."  Then I read the rest of your poem and realized you already knew it.  That was merely the opening line of a beautifully felt poem.  I think this will have to go to my favorites, if for no other reason than I can reread it over and over until I've gotten what I need from it to strengthen my testimony of our Saviour.

Thank you for sharing

i'm liking this message - believe when it doesn't make sense to believe - your words flow in such a silky smooth manner - great work.
