An Ode to Hope #atozchallenge #poetry #photography


o

If only

there was a rainbow

at the end of every storm

rather than a tender heart

torn adrift, forlorn

*

If  Only

there was sunshine 

to greet with each new day

instead of  endless tears

washing banks of hope away

***

If Only

I within your arms

ta hield against the cold

breaking shadow’s  greying spell

that’s what’s been foretold 

*

If only I imagine

a warm and moonlit night

your sunshiny kiss

dispels the  lingering cold

of a wintry frosty mist

***

I can only

dream pink petal snow

brushing against my face

soothing all the sadness

not leaving any trace

*

I’ll only

close my sleepy eyes

ruefully hope and pray

to see your smile

joyous rainbow in any day

The Ode: A formal, often ceremonious lyric poem that addresses and often celebrates a person, place, thing, or idea. Its stanza forms vary.

The odes of the English Romantic poets vary in stanza form. They often address an intense emotion at the onset of a personal crisis  or celebrate an object or image that leads to revelation. (Information gathered from Poetry Foundation)

Traditionaally each stanza is 10 lines ( I ended up breaking mine down).

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
