Distant Hope


There are some days
When one is drained -
Curiosity is flat
Mental strength strained
Spiritual energy depleted.

Watching a goldfinch
At the thistle feeder
Outside the kitchen window
Is the only intellectual inquiry I can make
And the only prayer I can offer.
Yet today
It is all I need
To see hope on the wing.
