Hope Springs Eternal


The gloomy days of winter lag behind

Spring jumps to center stage,

as march winds prevail,

leaving us in a sense of awe

waiting for warmer days,

Easter around the corner.


The white-robed apostles of hope

with trumpet shaped flowers bloom

filling the air with fragrance

symbolizing hope for mankind

reminding us of Jesus’s bold sacrifice.


Our hope springs eternal

with the signs of nature,

as birds joyfully chirp,

fluffy baby squirrels frolic,

and baby feral kitten’s pounce,

reminding us all things have a season.


We feel the darkness

coming to an end,

as God shines a way

for a better tomorrow,

discarding our hardships,

bringing us comfort, love

and joy.


There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens

— Ecclesiastes 3:1
