#TankaTuesday – Hope

Hope is everywhere

Within each unfurling bud

In the sun’s hot rays

And winter’s bitterest chill

Morning always dawns

  1. Lovely. Wishing you and yours a healthful, healing and hopeful New Year.

    I didn’t write yet to this post. Though the my last two segments for my story (not yet up) ~ the second ends on a note of hope. I’m going to try and write an unrelated (to my story piece) but I’m waiting until Jan 1.

    1. Oh bother, I was supposed to include a paragraph saying that I like writing tanka poetry because it is just the right length to express one complex thought. I like this style of poetry because it is powerful and punchy. You know, I actually thought I had written this in my post. I think my brain is turning to slush with all the holiday celebrating.

  2. Thanks for this encouraging reminder! We can always use more messages of hope. That looks like a magnolia blossom in the photo. I love their lemony fragrance.
