Hope

not lost, buried
behind a supermarket in the suburbs
shed like skin
trodden
into
crevasses searching
for signs of life
lying awake, in the dark
listening to the beating heart of life
waiting for the call
of sun and sparrow
when tendrils burst
from sidewalks and parking lots

shattered hope
scattered earthward
waits out winter
waits
and watches
not lost,
only buried

awaken now,
as green and gold reprimand
strong as love
and dandelions
to turn away
this
false
winter

  1. As Tammy said, you were missed, but what a come-back! Loved this uplifting beautiful truth poem. Well done! Such lovely words. Life can take us away from writing, but I am glad you came back because your words are important and we appreciate them xo
