De Jackson of WhimsyGizmo who is a Las Vegan, hosted Quadrille on Monday at dVerse, when we write a poem of exactly 44 words, including a given word. (I know I’m a little late for submission!) In light of the recent killings in Las Vegas, De rightly believes that in addition to prayers and healing, his city is in need of a little hope. So, he’s prompted us to write a quadrille on “hope”. Here’s my take on it.
when courage drowns in fear and wisdom flees dreading sneer when love gets brutally burnt and pride fails to discern even then my dear let hope beat in your heart let hope sway your mind let hope lead your steps let hope reign world !
