hope

hope is a dream 
a wonderful thing
like a kite it takes flight
and flies
as high as our string will let it fly
in the wind it twist and dives
but hold on to the string
by my faith i will

hope is a dream
a beautiful thing
like an egg lain to hatch
we wait and wait
and keep it warm
waiting for it to crack

hope is a dream
an expressive thing
a seed we dared to plant
we water and feed
and attend it's needs
till something from the dirt turns green

hope is a dream
a colorful thing 
a vision to be realized
we hold to our hopes
and act with our votes
to see our dreams materialized

hope is a dream
a mysterious thing
that most men say don't matter
but given time to pray about
the immaterial becomes matter

hope is a dream
a magical thing
with out it we may as well die
but beyond the clouds
and things that we see with our eyes
is the promise of a great surprise

    Sometimes people tell us to hang onto "hope" at times when it is difficult to do so. But there is a great reward for those who are strong enough to maintain hope through times of adversity. Another great write, John! Have missed hearing from you. Nice to see your new work! Love, Carolyn

    Smile John iii, .... I hope you write more poems like this because I love it. I love your other work, too. You know that. Hey, I have a challenge for you. Write a poem of the poetic form called "Romanticism"... sort of a 1500-1600's Shakespearian type of poem... not taliban... just good ole American and apple pie values.... old fashioned? LOL Loved your comment!
