Joining in with The Prompt

It's been a while but I decided to link back up with Sara's wonderful
there are some wonderful writers out there who contribute regularly to this linky and I often find their words really resonate with me so it's well worth a read even if you don't want to be inspired to write yourself - but you'll be tempted - I guarantee it!!

Here's my submission for this week's theme


To hope is to be human

To want things to change for the better

To believe that good can finally conquer evil

To dream that we accomplish the impossible

To nurture new life and send it out into the world

To face the challenges before us

To comfort all in times of illness

To hold onto in our darkest hour

To wish for peace for the next generation

I think my inspiration is coming yet again from the awful scenes in Syria and also wishing for a miracle cure for illness and disease that robs us of our loved ones.

Thank you for reading :)


  1. This is lovely. It's so simple, but then again sometimes it's the simplest things that can be hardest to make reality.

    You mention Syria inspiring you, but this could have been written during any number of wars in any number of countries around the world.

    1. yes it is rather depressing to think of just how many wars are still raging - and for what?

  2. Lovely words indeed. I wish you a peaceful and happy week x

    1. Thank you, Fil. It's lovely to hear from you again and see the pictures from your last tour just back from Scotland :)

  3. I love this! Without hope life would be very, very hard!

    1. Yes - at times hope is all we have, isn't it? But it can make all the difference!

  4. So, so true. What wonderfully positive words. This is exactly what hope should be. Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt, lovely to have you join in again x

  5. Thanks Sara - it's lovely to be back :)
