A Question of Hope by Linda Eve Diamond

A Question of Hope
by Linda Eve Diamond

 ` Inspired by “Hope” by George Fredric Watts (1886)

Hope is blind-
folded, leaning in

breathing softly

for the broken 
lyre’s secret truth 

holding on
with all she has

imagining, creating, 
unlocking key notes

with the shred of a string
on the thread of a ring

of plucky little plinks 
scaling up to the brink 

circling back for the lost 
harmonious chords 

becoming the music,
the quiet, the breath 

the embodiment 
of curiosity 

a question mark
spinning, exposed 

on the outskirts 
of the spinning globe…
