Refracted

light
undeterred
through glass and water passes
its frequency constant
through trial
determined
rays set on fixed destination
persists
yet
bends
its lengths adaptable
along the journey
adjusted
waves flexing toward focused end
it must be refitted
amended
remade
or
terminus
of
beam
would water and glass make

      1. Believe me, Tanya, you succeed! Don’t let your heart be so troubled about things…this is the world. Keep your heart on the hope in the fact that the Lord is over all and things will work according to His plans for the sake of goodness.

      2. That’s a good way to look at stress if one can master it. You probably get things out of your system by use of the pen. You write from the heart and that helps unload the shoulders….

        And you enjoy a stress-free evening, Tanya. 🙂

      3. Good afternoon, Tanya. Well, what are you up to today? I’ll be over to visit the blog a bit later…had a couple of errands to run this morning.

        Thanks for the well wishes, hope your day is a great one too. We need to enjoy them as they are a gift to us!

      4. Hi, Steve! We had an ice storm last night, so my internet connection was lost for hours. I’ve got it back now, but I’m behind in just about everything…Lol
        Good day to stay home and get caught up!😊

      5. Oh, I hear ice storms can be brutally cold and really cause some damage! Glad you got your internet back. This is of course a delayed reply, but today is a rainy day for us…cold and wet! We are really having the rain this year out here…as they say we need it…Lol!

        I have to get caught up as well.
        🙂
