Glimmers of Optimism

Prisms of shimmering colors

Light the path to serenity

Follow the glimmers

Watch for the light

So bright and occasionally white

Have you seen it? Did you look?

Beams flicker down through the trees

leaves waving, fluttering in a breeze

(c) Andrea Corwin

There is hope all around

Listen to its sound!

Hear the finches singing their slurs

While violet-green swallows fly by in blurs

A furry brown caterpillar inches its way

Right there by your foot, how can you say

the world is askew in this bright new day

Follow the glimmers and it will be okay

You can be happy to watch the play

of this beautiful world upon which we reside

How blessed are we all to be able to provide

optimism so that chaos is denied

    Glimmers of optimism, indeed : )

  • A beautiful and well-wrought walk through nature! Optimism is much easier to maintain in the light of a beautiful day. I needed that before I finish my morning cup of joe and trudge off to the dungeon... I mean, the factory where I earn my daily bread!

    Yesterday, two Jehovah's witnesses came to my door and asked me if I saw hope in the world. Should have given them this on a leaflet.

  • Awww, this was absolutely wonderful and uplifting! "Provide optimism so that chaos is denied". I really loved that line!

  • Cool

    Beautiful poem, Andrea, and a great reminder that I do not spend nearly enough time in the wild.
