Fear – quadrille for dVerse

We brought our hopes with us
like bright embers, nursed
across a great white snow field
under a darkening sky.

We brought our fears, too,
the ones that scrabble sideways
in the dark, that wake us,
sudden in the shivering night.

But mostly hopes.

 

Victoria at dVerse is looking for quadrilles with the keyword “fear” in them. It’s irresistible.

  1. Oh Sarah, hopes and fears tend to run together. I love the lines:
    ‘…bright embers, nursed
    across a great white snow field
    under a darkening sky’.
    And yes, I think fears ‘scrabble sideways in the dark’.
    We just have to keep the embers burning.

  2. “We brought” reminded me of pioneer journeys into a new land; full of hopes, dreams of a new beginning and overcoming fears. Never letting go of hope! 🙂
