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).
