Blue is Hope; Hope is Blue
And yesterday, none.
But, just like that,
Overnight they bloomed:
A blue to bring the summer sky,
And we to know that hope is nigh.
I am always amazed at the little things. Looking here and there, and looking there again the next day. Like the spot just over the wooden bridge over Fiddle Creek– turn to the left and see grass yesterday. And today, the lovely blue bells have popped up as a surprise for those looking.
Take a walk today and look, here and there.
Take a walk tomorrow, and look, here and there, again. What changed? What stayed the same? What surprised you?
Whatever it is that was your “here and there,” take a moment and write a few lines. Give it a title. Sign your name to your poem. Share it or tuck it away.

Our neighbor’s hyacinths have popped up – beautiful! Spring is HERE!
I can just see them, those hyacinths, popping up all over, helping us smile! Thanks Joy!
