New Hope...

Photo: Kilakarai, 2006




















Random footprints on the wet sand
  that the restless waves swill,
Bring memories of her lost land
  and pull her into a swirl.
She stares hard at the horizon
  where the boats dot like a rope;
In her arms a new born;
  and in her eyes new hope.

A single lightning cuts the sky
  as he draws close to the shore;
Amid thoughts of times gone by
  he wonders what’s in store;
He waves hard at the horizon
  as the clouds shed a drop;
In his mind his new born;
  and in his eyes new hope.
