Hope – again

Fmme writes poems

and so I’m not quite giving up on hope

the backs of my hands are scratched
I broke a nail

and I’m still gathering up the shreds
of hope
the broken bits

I’m stitching

I’m no seamstress, and my wonky banner
with its wobbly lettering
is kind of sad and saggy

but I’m carrying it
foolish and fluttering
all the stitches showing
as the sun shines through

Turns out I had more hope in me than I thought. This is for Earthweal and I’m linking it up to dVerse’s Open Link Night. Both good places to hang out.
