There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
nice...i hope your hope gets the respect it deserves...as you give it away...smiles.
The classical symmetry of the #syllables is pleasing and enhances the feeling that the subject/topic is going to come to a good end. I like the way you arranged sounds -- tend/tender/attention, needs/green, and the pair of "I have"s to make the poem feel like a closed little universe.
Great imagery! Thanks for this! Hope is indeed tender, and needs to be tended lest it turn into bitter cynicism
Hope your hope does not mopeOr hope the hope doesn't come to the end of it's ropelet the hope go on hoping so there can be hope for the hopeful, at least hopefully.
solid metaphor - nice early morning message
Lovely metaphor packed full of faith.
I like rictameters--fun to write, and in this case, fun to read, with a simple but far from simplistic message.
Beautiful in it's brevity and to the point. All the underlying risk-taking is understood.
Thank you one and all. I have been writing, but not had a lot of time to visit you all. I will thought, promise!
keep hoping,smart message well sent.
