Texture of Hope


Sometimes it comes without warning,

like that elusive rainbow

after the pouring rain

When your defenses are down

just for a day, it sneaks in

like a cool breeze on a scorching day

Other times, when judgement’s hammer

is about to fall, it rescues you like

a lifeline in an angry sea

When nothing and everything meld

in a suffocating fog, it cuts

with the precision of a surgeon’s scalpel

Time, perhaps the outskirts of time,

becomes tightly braided with its essence

gifting light to darkness

Hope, soft and soothing,

insistent and irrefutable,

provides just enough texture to sustain
