Hope – quadrille for dVerse

in the bottom
of my bag, I
found it – in the
crack the seam makes –
caught it
with my fingernail
and pulled it forth.

So small, and yet
it glowed, so beautiful
I kept it

breathed on it,
sighed, and
called it hope.


A quadrille for De at dVerse. She’s asking for hope, and all its variants. I hope this hits the spot.

  1. Ohhhhh….I wish you could have heard my audible sigh as I finished reading this. This is WONDERFUL! Sometimes it’s like that right, we have to dig deep down to find hope. And sometimes we have to fumble around and through aspects of life to find hope. This just is a perfect descriptive way of describing it! Wonderful!
