light sources: freckles

KendallCROP

The

sun’s rays

haven’t touched

my face yet today, and I long

to feel their warm kiss on my skin,

eyes closed as I lift my face,

open my arms wide,

and bask in their

embrace.

The sun has

been shining since before

I woke up, yet I haven’t made the effort

to soak up the sunlight and refill my fuel cells

to the brim, displacing any shadows

lingering inside and leaving

no space for their

return.

So I stop

now and stand

in your light, eyes closed,

facing you, ears wide open for your

word for me today and

asking for freckles

of your love to

sprinkle my

face.

Let me

show the signs

of your presence on

my face, in my heart, in my mind,

and in all that I do; may

your light shine

 through

me.
