hope II

How do we talk
about hope

when it is
as illusory as fear

and yet

both things can grab our guts
and pierce our hearts

and so we talk about

hope and
love and

as if they can step forth
and save us


Another one for De at dVerse (strangely satisfying words). A bit bleaker this time.

  1. Sarah, I feel this, too, deeply. I love that in the title, your “II” appears like the pause button on my iPad. Like sometimes hope does take a pause, as we ponder deeper, darker things.
