A Sign (haiku)

concrete city path

love grows green filling crevice

seen beneath my feet

We all wake up in the morning, head out to work. Our days aren’t always perfect. This particular morning I had many things on my mind, decisions to make. One doesn’t seek out depression, sometimes it just creeps up on you. I walked to the bus stop, head hung down. Thinking to myself, how alone I felt. I muttered a short prayer asking, “Please I need a sign that things will get better.” With amazement the reply appeared beneath my feet. You may think this a coincidence, others as a sign from above. I’m a spiritual person, not overtly religious. However from that moment I saw it, my spirit was lifted. I walked with purpose, holding my head high. All those things that worried me, worked themselves out. Sometimes the Beloved taps us on the shoulder ever so lightly as a reminder He’s with you . 🌎 ✌🏻 ❤️
