I Dream of Hope

In my dreams I don’t reach anymore for those ancient prophecies from desert winds. I dream of hope held gently on the wings of peace. A sky without violence.

You and I are a lot alike in that way. We each are rivers really. Yes, truth lives but does not scorn us in our stumbling.

And there is more to love than just saying it. Live it, and behold your reward.

  1. You worded this poem in such a perfect way to send us all hope. I loved the line, “A sky without violence.” I have seen skies that contained a great deal of violence. I want one that leaves me with hope.

      1. Thank you for welcoming me, I’m glad I came across it 🙂

        You’ve got a beautiful mind. I’m excited to see what else you have to write. Much success to you.

  2. “Live it and behold your world.” Our world speaks of love. Love of everything, love of ‘stuff’, love of ourselves, yet.,…to behold TRUE love, an unexplainable love that flows with our faith, is indeed true living. You are a gifted writer, Nico. Peace and blessings!

    1. Thank you Karla so much! Actually I was saying at the end here that, “Live and behold your reward.” Talking about love or our faith isn’t enough. We need to live it out so that people can see it is real! Our reward will be in the living of it and in the end with being pleasing to God. Peace and wonderful blessings.

      1. You’re welcome, Nico! I understand completely. I should’ve brought my thoughts around to the fact we have to be the love others see. I was sharing about all the “fake” love out there. I want to be HIS hands and feet and live out love indeed.

  3. The stream of life. I think the older we get the more we flow with it. Not looking back, just looking ahead and gratefully accepting and receiving.
