Evidences of Hope

Vintage Words


I lost hope but found it

this morning when my eyes



Once opened, hope leaped in

via the door ajar and the gangly

pup bound upon me and barked

canine hopes.


As hoped, winter happened

overnight, but warm coat

and boots, gloves and scarf

made taking the big pup

out for a fine crisp



So much hope filled his eyes

and cold feet as he spotted his

tree. I took lessons.


Now, the fire roars, the phone

rings, and voices of friends

configure hope into welcome sounds,

my trusty hound panting at my

feet wanting  to hopefully

share the conversation.

You R Welcome


I have this thing about not hiding under the bed when trouble comes. Hope moves folks. If resources dwindle, as projected, hope is what's left; and fortitude and vision. Peace. - slc
