Linda G. Hill’s challenge is to write something on the theme of “hope.” We are to write with little editing. That’s hard for me to do. I don’t like to turn in rough drafts, but here I am, accepting the challenge and thinking I know I could improve this if it weren’t against the rules. So read away! The concept I am writing about is good, even if the style is not so great. I am ever so thankful for HOPE. Thanks, Linda. Feeling humbled, I’ll be around to read the writings of others.
Tension is tight, There is no light
I feel tightness as a rope;
I’m discouraged, there seems no hope.
But then I think of what is true:
Birds flying in skies of blue,
Eggs boiling in the pot
Enough to eat though not a lot.
Bonbons roasting on a fire
The people are here whom I desire
Sofa so soft, soap so mild
Beautiful memories of my child
Eternal home with those in glory
Sitting at the computer to tell my story
Husband’s gone on to the bed
Flag is waving—white, blue and red
As I think on these good thoughts, I notice hope
Steals across across my mind.
I look forward to the future,
Having faith in things with which I cope.
