What is hope?
It gives life meaning.
It fulfills aspirations.
It thrusts you upward when life pulls you down into despair.
It raises your mouth instead of lowering your lips
It widens the eyes instead of squeezing the brows.
It waters the garden of the soul,
And colors the flowers of the spirit.
That’s why there is:
A wispy white plumage to dress the blue sky,
A prism of light on the wet horizon,
A burst of color out of the dark,
A mountain top pointed to the sky,
A reaching high,
A face golden in the glistening sun,
