Hope Is Evergreen

Hope is evergreen,

juniper under snow,

roots splitting cement

to grow oaks in a concrete jungle.

Hope breathes under water,

snatches fodder from the fire,

counts shooting stars in the fog,

paints masterpieces without a brush.

Hope lives in prisoner’s eyes,

feeds the hungry,

declares poverty a crime,

because Hope is

evergreen.
