Hope …

A winter’s night and despair stood forlorn

beneath the shivering stars of the galaxies of ice;

breathing brittle shards of frost and hopes lost ..

A night in winter and hope was reborn

beneath the tremulous stars of the galaxies of night –

for the waxing moon with her mysterious art

breathed silver sparks of light and life

into despair’s fractured heart …

    Hope is ever reborn, Marya, as I know well ; just as we are reborn, not once but each day if we so desire.
