Ember of Hope

Hope is a tiny
flickering ember —
sputtering, sparkling
snapping, and crackling —
as it tries to burst
into a hearty
flame.  Life’s storms rush in
trying to drown it
with torrential rain.
The tiny steadfast
ember stands bravely —
glowing brightly with
determination,
it’s thankful for the
protection of an
overhang, as it
awaits a strong breeze
to fan it into
the mighty roaring
fire of achievement.
