Hope Runs Strong

100_1102

Hope runs strong in the heart broken,

yet searching the horizon,

believing in the healing

with a measure of success,

plundering

the kingdom of despair.

Dr. Martin Luther King

from pbs

We have slipped, somewhat fallen away from his vision,

may we be restored,

may we return to the fire

seeking equality

for one,

and for all.

God thank You for the life and work of Dr. King.

Amen.

The Whisper of Winter

100_5681

This morning the clouds were heavy, hanging low,

I can barely see the mountains now

with snow clouds covering.

A light snow begins falling,

with the Earth waiting,

anticipating

the beauty of silence,

the whisper of winter.

And I smile as I walk,

having gone to the bookstore

just yesterday.

Note: I’m currently reading a paranormal spy thriller, and yesterday I purchased 2 books of poetry and a science fiction novel, which is very thick and will take a long time to read!
