I was inspired to write this short
piece the other day as out of the blue the winter sky lit up with fluffy pinks, blues w/ the golden rays of the sun...

What is the color of hope?


Hope is a color that comes when least expected. Wrapped

up in pink ribbons, always welcome and kind.

Looking up at the bleak winter skies, I don't see much

hope but with an artist's eye, I see more than dark clouds. I

see many colors blended together.  As I continue to look up

at the clouds, the wind changes the shape of the clouds, and the

entire mood of the sky changes in the blink of an eye.  That tells

me that life is forever moving forward, that a dark cloud is there

for but a moment, drifting slowly, lingering, almost as a tease,

holding a dark secret, or a private pain....


To wait out the storm clouds, breathe in the air, look closer as

the clouds part to reveal the night skies...wait a little longer

as the inky blackness of the evening approaches and the

stars light up one by one each one chasing the full moon...


The moon, like a huge ornament of the night, prides itself on

lighting up the world, in contrast to the sun, has a different

sort of light, but one that rules the ocean tides and the guiding

light of night into dawn....


The color of hope lies somewhere between dawn and dusk...It

is all the colors of the rainbow, all wrapped up with happiness,

moonbeams, sunlight, and smiles...Remembering that

you and only you reach out and catch that moonbeam

and bring it to your heart.....


Hope is what makes tomorrow...more than just a dream...

An amazing color that we live each day....
