Have you been Out looking for HOPE?

Spring Robin1

Over the past several weeks and months our family has endured tremendous amounts of stress, disappointment, sickness and trials.
Watching the changes of the weather back and forth wondering when spring will come.
One thing I am sure off Spring WILL Come.
Nature has a way of reminding us that there is hope.

So if you are having a difficult time today go outside for a walk and look for hope. Look for HOPE in nature. See what you can find.
I have always had a fascination for Nature.
On your nature walk did you hear a robin sing, a flower growing up through concrete, a vine clinging to an abandoned building.
It is so hopeful!


Here is my poem entitled Finding ‘Hope”

Finding ‘Hope’

Do you think
 life sucks, stinks, phoey
woe is me
downcast
hope lost
trials and tribulations
got you down
life filled with sorrow
no way out,
don’t give up
go for a walk
look for ‘hope’
put on your cardigan
close the door
see you later,
a luminous welcome
sun, splashed its rays around
fluffy clouds
with a mighty statement
robins singing
joy oh joy
 spring is a comin,
 roundin the turn
on the ragged path
 hear tinklin trickling stream
 singin in unison
with the wind
and angels wings,
thanks to ancient rain
brought life and hope
never
underestimate
lucid liquid gold of water,
 i believe there’s a ity bity bug
on that there tree
a bulrush
made it through winter
appeared out
of nowhere a single butterfly,
 kicking the blassy bough
revealed another baby tree
junior rabbit
crossed my path
with a wiggle
come and play,
the sounds of nature
a gentle musical
opus
as wind bows to kiss
my cheek
with a whisper
‘hope’
suddenly
the roar of the waterfall
 good -news nature choir,
further on
daffodil takes a peek
crocus arrived with a grin
cute baby critters
everywhere,
 as sure as shootin
spring follows winter
 ‘hope’ is comin
 nature prepin
for spring,
look to nature
find ‘hope’
so the journey
through the woods
not in vain
know how
 blessed i am,
 nature-
creator’s garden
filled with ‘hope’
and life
the heavens our canopy,
the creator
exchanged
the
cloak
of
despair
to
‘Hope’
Made
My
Day….
