Hope Underfoot

Hope has a way of lying in wait,

a covert operation,

disguised under fallen circumstances,

accumulation of littered dreams.

Just when the next step seems impossible,

the breath of heaven stirs,

tantalizing waft,

and there it is –

a glimmer,

a hint,

a whispered nuance;

  1. Reblogged this on Teacher as Transformer and commented:
    On Canadian Thanksgiving, we give thanks and await, with hope, for the next moment of thankfulness.

  2. This is heartwarming and my favorite for today. People perish without hope – yet can endure such intense suffering with it.

    This is SO, So Wonderful, Melody! I like “covert operation”–Agent Quicksilver, you know… I need to go back and find that other photo of yours–you have really cool stones in your garden! God bless you–love, Caddo

      Thanks Debbie. I was so excited to ‘find’ these forgotten pebbles, and realize the beautiful way they could teach us about life. Fun!
