Kerfe’s prompt guidelines;
- Emily Dickinson famously wrote a poem that begins with the line: ‘Hope is the thing with feathers’;
- Begin your own poem with the words ‘Hope is…’ and see where it takes you.
Re-Sharing a poem from December 23, 2021 with a few edits.
Hope is the brightness of universe
That cloaks our naked soul in its protectiveness
Without the shimmering robe of hope,
Our souls stands stripped, exposed
The world looks barren and desolate
Not a flower or tree in sight
Like a fairy, a wisp of light vapor
Condenses into a tangible form of hope
It anchors our heart and soul to life
Gives us a reason to wake up on the morrow
Lifts us up from the doldrums of sorrow
Dresses us in rainbows of dreams imagined
Clothes us, protects us and nurtures us
Without its shimmering robe we are defenseless
Written in response to W3, Prompted by Kerfe, hosted by David
