Hope Clings

115 - Copy

Hope clings in the face of barrenness;

hope sings in the face of long, cold days.

Love stirs hope’s yearning

and hangs on through the night

through discouragement

to brilliant day.

  4. ok. I admit it. I snuck out there last night and tied that one up in that tree. Just wanted to see how you would react…

    Amazing! Both the poem and the picture! You have what my father used to call “a good eye” – and lots of ways in writing to emphasize the beautiful things you see.

    • Thanks! I was with some friends in the mountains on a holiday home tour. Off the deck, I saw a line of apple trees, all leafless, of course. Then this lone whole apple there seemed to stand out and yell HOPE. 🙂

    Coming through my reader, I saw the title here and the photo and I sighed a big sigh because together they were just perfect and so beautiful…and then I scrolled down to see it was yours and thought “of course, I love every single one of her posts.” Just beautiful again. Thanks for all of the joy your blog inspires! -Jennifer

I would love to hear from you!
