Hope: a poem

I wrote this last year as a few paragraphs, but thought I would try it as a poem. By the way, I am not a very good poet….

hope

hope sat
alighted on my shoulder
white, beautiful 
ever present
*
with the final sigh of life
graceful wings were set open
and it was gone
*
it sends a mournful cry
as if looking for its mate
haunting, distant
and my eye cannot see it

    I agree with the other comments. Hope is so fragile and you’ve captured that fragility well.
