Poetry Sunday ~ The Color of Hope

Pss.16: 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

The Color of Hope

Would you paint it red
for the fiery passion
that’s lit inside
the essence of your being?

Would the orange of
your light be dashed
with flecks of stone
that ignite your heart?

Would it shine of yellow
like the sun that fills
you with the very light
of your soul?

Would you feather it in green
like the fields of color
that blossom in the
artists hue of spring?

Would it be cloaked in blue
like the depths of the
wavy ocean that’s
a part of your emotional stance?

Would it be disguised
as the indigo of life
warming your very fingertips
that brush the earth.

Or would it be painted violet
to add vibrancy to an already
living palette of bursting
breathing color?

Hope lies in the blush
of a colorful prism
that veils your world
in a bounty of love.

Hope would be "colored" in all the colors of God's Rainbow, as HE is my hope!
