This week Ronovan has given us the lovely prompt word ‘hope’ for his and Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Challenge.
The quote I have chosen is particularly apt in so many ways….
I don’t think of all the misery, but of the beauty that still remains.
– Anne Frank
When rain blocks out the sunshine
And dampens down the day
A rainbow shows its colours
And brightens up the grey
The night sky so foreboding
Shadowy and dark
The moon and stars start playing
Causing illuminating sparks
A young family on the breadline
Trying to make ends meet
Dad has bought some sweets home
Just to give them a little treat
The little boy with cancer
Who is struggling to survive
His parents treasure every day
Their precious son is alive
A woman longing for a baby
Who has tried for so many years
Then her prayers are answered
As the thin blue line appears
Wars and terror divide us
We need unity, hope and faith
Together, we can make a difference
To make this world a better place

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
