Discovering Hope

Written by: Jayne Eggins

I cried a new galaxy of stars 
wondering if all was lost,
and I braved a new world
thinking the old was diminished


but all was not lost
and nothing diminished,
as one light snuffs out
another ignites


rising over the breast
of a new world, rests Hope, 
glimmering minutely but glittering  
the stars of our universe
