hope surprises

Keeping hope alive with dVerse Poets in a “quadrille” of exactly 44 words…


hope dangles around courage’s neck,

name etched on soldier’s dog tag.


image by lynn


hope throbs within young love’s heart,

hands held in first awkward clasp.


hope gazes into future’s eyes,

grandchildren carry family name.


hope laughs in fear’s masked face,

dove flies home after violent storm.

    Just so lovely, lynn. So much hope to be found here. This choked me up:
    “name etched on soldier’s dog tag”

    Hope has so many names…

    I like this so very much… almost mirroring the saying where there is life there is hope… even the soldier…

    Most touching with the grandchildren (or any child I guess)
