SMALL HOPE

The recent  Poetry Park prompt is about hope with a well-known quote by American poet, Emily Dickinson. The posting is found at http://thepoetrypark.com/2015/03/02/9-where-theres-hope-theres-life-2/?sn=c&c=154#comment-154.

There is such a range of hope, even in the small daily tasks we undertake. This, I experienced with my attempt to bake bread. Working with yeast was a challenge but, after a couple of tries, the   yeast rose to the correct amount for this beginner. The end result, pictured below, was a tasty accompaniment to a homemade soup.

Success!

I baked a loaf of bread today –

Irish brown with a touch of molasses –

my hope that it would rise for a soupy supper.

T dah!

A 6-word poetry prompt arrived in my email today. I have greened the words that I used in my poem from the list found at http://thepoetrypark.com/2015/02/19/6-wordling-words-no-2/.

2015 ICE STORM AFTERMATH

2015 ICE STORM AFTERMATH

MORNING MOMENT

Glittering willow

took my breath away

as she swayed in the eastern wind

Dignity intact

Weeping song

hushed by ice storm
