Poetry Corner: Drops of Hope.

Spring signals new beginnings
Blooming possibilities
Colorful drops of hope
Releasing dark ties of
Past regrets
Allowing the washing away of misaligned intentions
Embracing what will remain

After the thaw
Of our hearts
So constantly beating
In hope of potential …
Remembers that some seeds
Do not wish to reach
Towards the light;
And an old oak falls
So that the calling of a beautiful future
can have an opportunity to grow;

May the echo of that fall
Leave our ears someday soon;
I beg the Spring fairies and walk in faith
As the chaotic seasons
reflect the storms of change
Living in the soul
