what else can you do...stand there and it still might collapse...go back, well its probably just as far as it is forward....smiles.
I sometimes feel like that tight rope walker praying to avoid a Humpty-Dumpty fate...great lines Laurie :)
"Hope treads ahead.....keenly aware...yet with faith enough to try." That says it all, Laurie. Engraved on our hearts.
We all experience these tight rope moments but they are surely 'easier' when hope treads ahead.
"yet with faith enough to try" is the punch line for strong spirit. Keep it up!
a tightrope walker.. that thought of a bridge.. only way is forward.. very much like life itself
Plank by rickety plank - excellent opening line. it just opens up the poem and makes your words sing. Well done.
The confidence is always there. It does not work otherwise! Nicely Laurie!Hank
Hope so timidly moving ahead!! always on the verge of collapse and yet trying its best... Hope we all live by!! smiling!!
Indeed a person has to have enough faith to keep walking one step at a time, whether on a tight rope or on the path called 'life.'
Hope and faith...and keep going and trying...Well said.
yeah; just keep on journeying, sometimes thoughts become so powerful like they are themselves creatorsHappy you visited my blogmuch love...
You must know how this resonates with me ... great poem!!!
Wonderful--moving forward whatever bridge you are on. Great prompt.
Laurie, love the "hope treads" both walking and treads to walk upon :-) Very clever. This was a great prompt!
I really like your poem, Laurie--and you have a lovely blog. I so enjoyed participating in this Poetry Jam prompt--hope I did it justice for you. God bless!
Faith is the one thing which keeps one going..what else can one do..)
Insightful and beautifully sketched “take” on hope. We can't live without it - though, sometimes it seems, it's hard to live with it. Smiles.
Like the swinging bridges in my childhood: don't look down! keep moving! Great poem. :)
lovely in its simplicity ... I like the rhythm of the poem - and positive attitude!
Great poem and thoughts about life...one must move forward when faced with challenges...waiting makes the fear increase...moving forward is open to so many possibilities.
Lovely way to put down in words what life is about - it's sometimes hard to try, but still we have to. Wonderful!
a tightrope walkerI think we all feel like that so many times in life
