Pure and simple

“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have faith.” Paulo Coelho

The days move into nights,

laborious yet watchful.

Coppered late-day sun

lazily slips, bidding farewell.

Relentless darkness,

wretched in intent,

looms beyond the night.

Cosmic rhythms reach eternal,

as spiritual souls emerge

from moonlit shadows.

Those with

instinctive and unyielding faith

seek the truth.

Their journey triumphs

through this thing called life.

This month, share one or more places in which you put your faith. Also, if you do not believe in the concept of faith, share your view as well.

You can use art, any form of writing or media.

  1. The more I see folks struggling with memory loss… I just wonder what life they have.
    We had lunch today with an elder who we saw two weeks ago …but didn’t remember our outing at all. And yet we strive to get through and on to the next day. sigh

    Lovely verse. But I’m a tad frustrated for those who live in their memories and five minute loops of the present time. Hoping that they have some kind of fulfilment.


    1. A very sad situation for those who have memory loss and it seems no cure or help on how to combat it. Perhaps, their fulfillment is the memories from their past.


      1. Having just memory loss would be enough. But some of these folks have other health issues and no one close to care… must rely on the places where they’ve been ‘put’. Unless they had premade plans… but sometimes even those plans don’t go as planned.


  2. This is a thought-provoking post, Eugi. I love the photo. I agree with the quote and like your words. Sometimes what lies ahead is unknown and causes fear. But we need to put that fear aside. Trust and faith πŸ™


  3. Loved your poem… and your chosen quote… I have several of Paulo Coelho books too…. πŸ™‚ Insightful reads too… πŸ™‚ Enjoy your weekend Eugenia ❀


  4. I put my faith right now in finding summer fun in each of the sixteen places we will visit on our upcoming road trip. Whether that will become spiritual, I do not know.


  5. Gorgeous imagery Eugi. Faith got me out of the darkest period of my life. Despite our different beliefs, I’m a strong believer in accepting that faith is a choice and people can make different choices which can be discussed but always respected.
    Great take on the prompt.
