HAPPY NEW YEAR 2011 - LET THERE BE HOPE

 

 

 

 

 HOPE'S ENTRANCE 

 

 

 

Filigreed shreds of last year's frock,

Flutter feebly on the fringe of  floating applause.

An old lady now, flooded in footlights' flame;

Still the fragile smile.

Still the feathery wave.

Even in the final flourishing cadence of death:

As Final Bow melts into Opening Night,

And fading finger of memories beckons future bride.

HOPE takes her place in the spotlight.
