Hope – Hour 5

Pick 5 words from the list in the prompt:

space,  wine glass,  pavement,  sunflower,  oak

In the space,

between the pavement

and the bomb-levelled home,

the oak tree clung to life,

its limbs splintered

by shrapnel.


Beside it a solitary sunflower

its face bent in sorrow

looked down at a wine glass,



Nature grieves for us,

yet hopes

for an end to war.
