WHAT’S THE ALTERNATIVE? – poetry

Published November 26, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Hope is good for the immune system.

Props us up so we don’t fall…

until we do.

 

Softens the features. Soothes

the brow, lifts the heart…

We chance it.

 

Would that it were a wrench to

tighten the bolts of our wobbly

world. Surer and tighter…

 

To live as though there were hope–

does that disrespect ourselves

or is it reasonable?

 

Helium balloons  lift  and maintain

until the journey’s over.

Sometimes.                                                                Nan             11/25/19

  • Hope Is the Ballon that lifts Fear is the one that
    Descends For Giving
    Thanks Giving is
    The Nature of
    Flowers that
    Rise Beyond
    Thorns as
    Most
    Beautiful
    Rose Colors
    Life Eternally
    Now Change Exists
    But We Are the Navigators
    For Flight or Descent Now
    Thanks Nan inspiring
    Poetry
    You
    Bring
    In Rise of Rose..:)
