deepest oceans of despair

this vast and somber
charcoal night of space

have you given up yet?

what hope lingers in the crevasses and corners of your soul?

i know you

you haven't given up yet

you are brave in this darkness, Saint Saturn

sometimes the bravest thing of all is to hope

Hope is a radical thing in our world full of nay-sayers. But it is often the hopeful who are watchful and see the signs before all others. Who else but such a one sees the first signs of Spring not in the robin or the bud but in ever lengthening icicles, revels in the moments before a newborn cries aloud for the first time, or has the faith to find unconventional beauty in places such as arid deserts where nothing blooms?
