Day Twenty-Nine,Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - 2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 29

Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer - 2011 April PAD Challenge: Day 29

For today's prompt, write an ode. I'm thinking of odes in the more contemporary sense of being a praise poem, though if people want to get all old school with it, then that's fine too. If I had more energy, I'd try to write a fitting ode to everyone of you participating in the challenge. This has been a terrific month (even with the strep throat). However, I had to settle for writing an ode about something else that just happened.

"Of Hope"

Amidst the destruction of earthquakes,
And fires of dry earth.
Of winds that rip and tear,
Water of weight to bear.
Through ice and chill beyond,
A deadly flushing slope...
Somehow,
We still find...
Hope.
