Barriers To Freedom - Poem by Joseph Stainer Mitchell

Under cover of dark clouds
Landscapes appear on the horizon
The sun shining through the trees - yet
Barriers held the shadows shielding all
Life as far as the eyes could see Dark clouds to streams glistening
Eagles watching their prey
Seasons only gave warnings proving
To all living creatures in far off
Lands in their calling Barriers held fast - break waters gave
sanctuary to life's creation
Thunder - lighting opened the sky
Sunshine gave light - Rivers gave
Freedom to all creatures Looking back, buds gave signs of life
Flowers blossomed, looking upwards to
the sky became reality to all around.
