A shaft of sunlight sweeps like a spotlight
Rain drops dancing on the arbor like jewelled ballet slippers
Whispers of the unseen wind ripple through the garden
Brilliant maple leaves flutter down like the curtain call
The glittering moment brought tears of joy to my eyes and caught up my thoughts to a time and place when we won't need the sun to shine as we know it, and we may not have falling leaves, but rather the Son of God will be light to all in His new heaven and new earth, where I together with His church will dance and praise him forever.
