Hope



Chances are bleak
Reports paint black, hope
Still green

Tiny feet
Rush to open door, chocolate
Or cookies

Nervous eyes
Leaf thorough newspaper
Fingers crossed

Prayers for rain
Little girl with umbrella
Conviction

  20. Hey Meenakshi.. long time.. you blog less frequently, i guess busy these days..

    You know what, I am the biggest fan of this word, hope..
    And so I was naturally drawn to this post as soon as I saw its link on my mail, and I knew that I wouldn't be disappointed. You have captured this lovely emotion beautifully in different ways. I loved the first one, being a doctor, I know it works, hope... :)
