Hope in words

Hope in words
in the goodness
that rises up
out of the earth
The hawk eye
that spied a hawk
one Friday evening
at Earls Court station

a bird out
of its comfort zone
its implacable eyes
scouring for edible life

the poet who places
hope in words
that might carry the mind
to a better place

John Lyons
