The Watch That Keeps Time

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Hope

As I prepare to enter

into the new year

I ponder the good times 

before this year that

seem of a long time ago

finding them hard to remember…

~

As 2020 is laid to rest

with its devastation of

too many lost lives and

the Wisdom gained 

from painful lessons

due to lack of uninformed

choices driven by fear…

~

I now meditate on 

the new times with

faith they will become a

reality of cherished memories…

~

Alas, patience must persevere

while suffering through the surge

before the new times arrive so

I will let hope be the watch

that keeps time 

making it worth the wait!

Madness of nation’s darkness

moments of light

few and far between

soul’s embitterment

taste intolerable

attempting to recall

memories of sweet

failure brings surrender

powerlessness cloaks eyes

exhale…inhale…

smell transition’s aroma

just as nature’s 

change of season

a promise to trust

good shall rise up and

shine like Autumn’s brilliance

laying to rest 

death’s shadows

upon humanity.
