Forest Sunlight

There is sunlight in the forest today
Sifting through the trees
Like a luminescent waterfall
Crushing all darkness below

There is sunlight in the forest today
Where fawn-spotted mushrooms grow
Where lurks the red-tailed hawk
Whose back shimmers in the sun’s white rays

There is sunlight in the forest today
Guiding home all those lost
Illuminating the trail by the little stream
We hear only when it rains

There is sunlight in the forest today
It falls on my uplifted face
Bearing my soul
To the heavens above

  1. Got to something about the color theme on your site. Those of us who have color vision problem can barely read it. It becomes very tedious. THanks for hearing me. I can’t even see to proof this. Sorry.

  2. Website Visibility: Sorry for your color vision problem. Unfortunately I like the design of my website and have not had complaints from anyone else about it.
