hope

this window is just
the idea of sky

in the same way hands
merely suggest caress

human hearts imagine
more than what is given

this ceaseless
invocation is hope

and is the reason for
so many moon songs

  1. Congratulations on this one especially, Sarah. It is immensely poignant – and yet so brief. There’s a lot of room in it for the reader’s own feelings to grow.
