Clouds of Hope

Clouds, sky, kites flying
Drawing and poetry by Leona J. Atkinson

I see

Patches of hope

White clouds of promise

Floating above the virus

Look up!

Rise up

Above the

Gloom and doom that’s creeping

Set your focus higher, freedom’s

Coming

Fly Away from Fear

Fly above the waters of doubt

Don’t let them drown and destroy your dreams

Don’t let your fears hold you down

Soar to the brights skies beyond

Keep looking ahead

Gather your strength

Never give

Fear a

Chance

When…

Clouds in blue sky

Worries appear like

Cloud, upon cloud, upon cloud

Threatening your day

Shift the view by looking up

Focus on blue sky above

Tanka

As the clouds move on and pass away, so will your troubles. Therefore, do not worry, but shift your focus to look to God above who is in control of all things.

(While out shopping today I happened to look up at the sky, as I often do because I always enjoy seeing the many different beautiful clouds Oregon has,and seeing this scalloped cloud formation today intrigued me.

As I gazed at it this poem formed in my mind that I felt I should share as it’s always a good reminder to me, as well as others, that we should not worry. )
