Hope

A Poem by Emily B

 

I fall

like Spring rain

sprinkling the ordinary

with imaginary color.

 

I drop

drop, drop

from an unseen Hand.

 

Waiting to be taken

up and begin again,

content in the pattern.

Emily, this is a beautiful representation of hope and hope's life it gives to us. Like rain, it renews us in every way. :)

“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”

This is going to sound like self promotion, and it is not, but I think you should enter this into the "Hopeful Poems" Contest. I'm moderating it, and I have to say this piece is perfect for it.

it's been a long time since I entered any contest, but why not?
This poem is beautiful, I think you did a very good job capturing the essence of hope, and what it is. And how nothing is hopeless.

I don't plant a lot of flowers, but i like how some annual varieties have an enormous will to keep going and propagating. Sunflowers, marigolds, etc. The only sad thing is that they only bloom once, maybe twice a year, but they are worth it. Beauty and hope pop up when you least expect it, like this wonderful poem. CD
