Quote of the week

Fruitful Friday

There is another Sky – Emily Dickinson

There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;
Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields –
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
Where not a frost has been;
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum:
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!

A fairly optimistic poem. What the other sky is referring to, that’s up to the reader. In General however, I believe the poem is saying that no matter how hard life gets, there’s always a bright side, something better on the horizon; you might have to trudge through darkness to get there, but it’s worth the trouble. Have a great weekend and thanks for reading!
