Eyes of Grace

The quiet of descending night
Colors fade in the darkening
(Free Write Friday - Image Prompt)
Lost in  a world of confusion
Believing in one small spark
A haunting of romance
Calls on the soft breeze
Feel the pull of something more
Timeless, ancient yet new
Alone but not;
My head says I won't,
but my heart says I might
Searching for God's face
Silently watched by loving jealous eyes of grace
The caged animal is free
Not realizing the animal is me

I love the detail about the caged animal!! That element of the image gathered my muse, too. Well done!

Thanks Hannah! The first thing that caught my eye was the tiger outside the cage and if you look closely it appears he is standing on the cage door. Thanks for stopping by!

I really like how your capitalization of each line left me to pause briefly before reading the next which made for a more dramatic read. Beautifully inspiring with lingering hope. Really appreciate you taking time out to write with us at FWF! See you back soon!

Nice response. Never thought of linking the animal to a representation of self.

Thank you all for your nice words or encouragement. As my first venture into FWF wasn't sure what to expect. All participants are so talented in their own right, I definitely will be back!
