Hope




A poem from my book Island Lovers, Poems and Images of Mauritius, 
with the accompanying photo I took on the island. 


Hope

I was lost and grey
an ocean filled with tears

from the dark clouds
a shaft of light broke free

silver slivers of hope
twinkled on the surface

and my forlorn heart
glided with equanimity

bearing no fear
towards uncertainty
