Ra’s Promise


Photo title: Evening Journey, courtesy of my friend Jane.

Ra’s Promise


The sky ignites

as travelers flee for home

abandoning their roots


Ice particles scatter

conspiring with the setting sun

toasting balmy illusions


Passengers shift impatiently

oblivious to nature’s tepid strokes

destination; anyplace warmer


Barren branches remain

patiently awaiting Ra’s solemn promise

of radiant blessings

  1. This is just gorgeous--the photo and the poem. Nice to bring Ra into it.
