The Glimmer

The Glimmer

A Poem by The Ink Chapters
"

A little hope in the dark

"
There is a glimmer of hope
In every existence
The feeling of sun on your skin
The sight of a snowflake
Perpetually falling until it meets the earth

This glimmer is so tiny at times
That it is barely seen
But it exists nonetheless
And holding onto that glimmer
Is holding onto the essence of life

Brilliant, well-crafted & meaningful! I love the soft simplicity of your message combined with the hard impact of fundamental truth, plus the way we can feel the tickle of a glimmer shimmering up & down every line as we read. Makes a reader want to look around & snag it (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

The feeling of the warm sun on my skin always gives me feelings of hope and optimism for the day. Maybe that's just the vitamin D? Either way, I always need help catching my perpetually falling snowflake.
I really enjoyed this happy little piece. :)

A good point is made in this one. Even in deepest darkness, some light is there. We just have to look for it.
