Hope.... (Food For Thought)


Recommended Posts


It’s Magic and it’s free,

It’s not in a prescription,

It’s not in an IV.

It punctuates our laughter,

It sparkles our tears,

It simmers under our sorrows,

And dissipates are fears.

Do you know what hope is?

It’s reaching past today,

It’s dreaming of tomorrow,

It’s trying a new way.

It’s pushing past impossible,

It’s pounding on the door,

It’s questioning the answers,

It’s always seeking more.

It’s rumors of a breakthrough,

It’s whispers of a cure,

A rollercoaster ride,

Of remedies unsure.

Do you know what hope is?

It’s candy for the soul,

It’s perfume for the sprit,

To share it, makes you whole.

"Hope" is the thing with feathers –

That perches in the soul –

And sings the tune without the words –

And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –

And sore must be the storm –

That could abash the little Bird

That kept so many warm –

I've heard it in the chillest land –

And on the strangest Sea –

Yet, never, in Extremity,

It asked a crumb – of Me.

~ Emily Dickinson

Well, looks like I'll have to go to Sears and get another refrigerator for all of the beautiful poems and quotes that have been being posted here :lol: .

I'll be know in the neighborhood as "the refrigerator lady" -on Halloween all the neighborhood children will dare one another to knock on my door-

" :shock: I heard she has all those refregerators to keep her collection of body parts of different poets! :o Ewwwweee!" Most neighborhoods only have 'the cat lady'. :wink:

Keep them coming, though. Even if I don't have room on the fridge, it will be nice to come back and read things that make you see the big picture...especially when there is a rough patch in the road. Thank you dadstimeon and snowflake. Take care, Deb
