d’Verse Poets Pub – Quadrille #42 – hope
De has filled the pub with hope
A Shell of Hope
we coat our hearts with
a fragile shell of hope
trying to protect it from
the chips and cracks
that will inevitably occur
we seal those chips and cracks
with patches of tolerance,
knowledge and love
making our hope shine
brightly amid the darkness

Wonderful imagery, filling the cracks and chips with all that strengthens the heart.
I like hope viewed as a protective shell around our hearts that requires maintenance.
I feel that “fragile shell of hope,” deeply.
