The Colors of Our Lives

Yellow, Green and Orange Ceramic Leaf
Marianne Oberg
The Colors of Our Lives

It was a very special walk in a special place
Where my love and I shared much joy
I have missed her yet continue to feel connected
Bringing me happiness and peace
But I’ve felt so sad and lonely...

This morning I humbly asked for guidance
And by grace it came
“The spiritual path is long
Don’t be discouraged by valleys and tears.”

Then I found a single leaf
With colors of yellows, oranges and greens
Many shades of brown, on a red stem
It is still summer, not yet autumn
But on this mountainside
The weathered leaf gave mute testimony
To the varied colors of our lives
And a deep sense of peace and acceptance
Settled in my soul.
