Newborn

Where there’s life, there hope–
your tiny hand is full of promise,
growing into luminescence,
reaching out, moving towards light.

Your tiny hand is full of promise–
it opens like the sky,
reaching out, moving towards light
like a flower awakening.

It opens like the sky,
complete and infinite–
like a flower awakening,
dancing with the wind.

Complete and infinite,
you sparkle the darkness–
dancing with the wind
like a trail of stars.

You sparkle the darkness–
a mirror, a pathway
like a trail of stars–
everything all at once.

A mirror, a pathway
growing into luminescence–
everything all at once–
where there’s life, there’s hope.

Merril at dVerse asks us to write a poem incorporating a proverb.

where there’s life, there’s hope

    1. Thanks Ron.
      WordPress would not let me leave a comment on your post, but I especially identified with the locked door, as I’ve forgotten my keys inside on more than one occasion. But they all made me smile.

  1. This is so gorgeously worded, Kerfe! I especially love; “You sparkle the darkness–a mirror, a pathway
    like a trail of stars–everything all at once.”💝💝

  2. A gorgeous poem and homage to new life, and lovely accompanying artwork. I especially liked the stanza:

    “Your tiny hand is full of promise–
    it opens like the sky,
    reaching out, moving towards light
    like a flower awakening.”

    So lovely ❤
