Rays of light.





When the darkness surrounds…



And I feel frightened 


Of the unknown




A small lantern 

Dispels the darkness,




Quells my fears 




Helps me 

Take footsteps,




Tiny footsteps forward, courageously .


Unexpected little rays of light, on certain days, are sometimes what helps us keep walking this journey of life.


Each painting that I do becomes one such ray.


So do you, dear friends who take time to read and write to me!


Every one of you is a precious ray of light to me.


 

My painting is done using acrylic on canvas.

Linking up with dear artists on PPF, AJED, CED, SS,
Show and Tell Saturday.
