Hope

A Poem by Lori Brown Boniciolli

Hope

Hope does not spring eternal, Mr. Pope.

It must be fed; preferring hearts, brains, and lungs.

Stoke or croak, you could say.

Fuel the blaze!  Make it grow!

But careful, careful...

The flame can engulf and consume;

eat it's keeper.


First they are one.

then they are gone.

'hope', hope is for children...for those with scar tissue, fresh air and mountains is better medicine...to sit by an ocean long enough to disappear is the heart of healing...
