March Musings #20: On Hope


Hope is ever-present
in nature and in life
even when tucked away.
Hope gives life to the forgotten,
opens doors, previously closed.
It becomes the defining moment, 
surfacing from the unnoticed and unseen.
Hope prevails in the midst of earthly challenges.
to become the miracle of spring and all it promises.

When my Twitter friend, Rita Wirtz, came back to writing her Bam Radio blog post, I felt compelled to write her a poetic response to her statement, " Hope is the miracle, the defining moment", so I lifted her line and wrote. 


We are defined by who we are in the midst of challenge.
When perplexed I am reminded that
Spring promises await.
