Before the Trek

A path appeared where I had set my gaze. It reached from distant times beneath the sun. To travel it took all one’s earthly days, and soon, I knew, my trek would be begun. The Tidings Wind was echoing through trees - those stalwart prophets fixed along the path. Humanity was sounding in the breeze their mingled cries of grief and joy and wrath. Though barely could I grasp the nature of the journey I would take, I felt the thrill of leaving home, for Father told me love would greet me there below with my free will. I’d stumble, but I trusted Him to place His signs to guide me back by light of Grace.

Wow, Carrie was calling you the Queen of Sonnets as far back as 2012 (see below)! I happen to agree with her (as you know) and this sonnet is another example of why I have come to feel this way. This is a really nice spiritual write, and another fave for me. I loved 'The Tidings Wind was echoing through trees', mixing destiny and nature and later, free will. Beautiful.

May our paths be filled with appreciative eyes. That make us grateful and truly wise. To spend some time with a friend or two. What more in life could you ask to do. Thank's for the help on the word coup. That is the correct spelling. I know, I looked up 20 other words first. :)
