humble hope

Poetics: Poetry Is For The Birds
d’Verse Poets
~
the congregation sits in silence
humble prayers take flight as
wisps of smoke
bouquets of daffodils adorned
with skeins of ribbon
the only light amid the
tidings of unkindness
there is no ostentatious orator

with brooding words of deceit
only murmurations of hope
for peace

  1. Not many feathers fluttering through this, but bird collective nouns are multidimensional, & you have used a gaggle of them quite effectively; what imaginative fun.

    Yes, so many instances of deceit in this imperfect world. The political will to resolve ends with lame murmurings and ineffective efforts. Truly said Candy!

  3. Murmurations for peace indeed……….these times are so frightening. Your words, whether meant to be or not, bring to mind the solidarity being shown in Europe, indeed across the world, in the hope for peace.
