Hope’s Arrival





When you come to the place of peace,


don’t rush  to get to the next thing

but savor the gift.


With the sleepiness of morning

still in your eyes,


Hope gently nudges you awake;

she arrives on the wings of dawn.


Open wide your heart to receive her-

Let her not depart

without knowing




welcome her as an old friend.


Embrace her-

for she will not abandon you

in your time of need.
