“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
~ Albert Einstein
"Hope" is the thing with feathers
"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
Typically at this time of the month we are treated to a prompt by signed…..bkm and we had one ready, but in light of the recent events in Japan we thought more fitting to tap the general feelings of poets around the world. We wanted to use a very important word for this week. That word is hope.
Currently many people hope that things get better, hope that their families are ok, hope they can recover, hope that more disasters are avoided and hope that they can persevere. Poets United also hopes with and for them.
This week write about hope. You don’t have to write about the events in Japan you can tell us about what hope has done or will do for you, your family, your friends or people you don’t even know. We look forward to reading your inspiring words on hope.
If you have a prompt idea (even a Music or Film inspired one) that you would like to suggest or share with us please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org . We keep a folder set aside with all your suggestions and just might use it one day.
There 3 simple rules:
1. Don’t link to more than 3 poems per week.
2. Please visit some of the other poems linked here when you link to yours.
3. Leave a comment after you have posted your link.
