Hope is a promise cherished
A loving word transforms a painful memory
A match struck lights up a dungeon
A tear of love heals the ashes of the past
A sip of beauty dilates a chalice of pain
A tender embrace casts down a mountain of fear
A sweet perfume forgives a sorrowful heart
Hope is a banquet
Hope is a hunger
Hope is a word of grace


  1. hope as a banquet and a hunger...ha...i like that much alan...

  2. Many lovely thoughts & images in this piece, and good strong verbs to spice up the brevity of it; like the line /a tear of love heals the ashes of the past/. Thanks for sharing.
