Hope is a Little Girl in Red Pigtails
Hope is a little girl in red pigtails,
flittingÂ ahead of weary motherhood,
inviting flight into crisp blue bird bath of
Alighting long enough forÂ plump morsels of life.
until branches offers newÂ heights of perspective.
“Up here sheÂ tweets”, bouncing excitedly.
Calling me from the security of nesting, to explore
what hope scouts ahead.
