Hope's Window

For her, time stood still that day


Each tick of the clock

obsorbed into the sand

to be carried away 

by waves of sorrow.


Gone were the vibrant colors 

which enriched her being 

replaced by the greys 

of lost tomorrows


Her window to the heavens 

remained in her sight 

a sliver of hope 

in her darkest night


Her feet soon found perch 

on pains rocky shore 

as grace lit her path 

with healing moonlight

    Hope and faith are what we have to quell our fears just like a salve. We live our lives in solemn grace when hearts are heavy and tears stain the face. The sun came out to warm the day. And let us know we'll find our way.

    You give so much in your poems Deb, there is a graceful maturity in these lines that have a touch of mystery to satisfy the mind. Loved it so very much!

    Hope is eternal, yet seems further out of sight. Lifes only consulation is it's distant peaceful light. To let us know tomorrow's there to bring us home at last. There is no hope in yesterday, just memories that passed.

    ‡ Upon Heaven's Shores, My Dear Blessed Beautiful Lady * So Many Contraries Like Traps Inside & About Which Try & Steal The Beautiful Hope From Priceless Hearts * And The Peter Unto They That, The LORD, Showed Myself Amid A Vision That, Call Nothing That I Have Made Clean Unclean * HE, Whom Calls That Which Never Was, As Though It Is * Casting Away Yesterday, Into The Distant Infinite Winds, Again, Standing Upon Heaven's Shores * Love Your Poem; Feeling The Beauty Inside * My Luv, Rachel ‡
