Hopefulvia Daily Prompt: Hopeful


beneath the hand it is smooth

new and bright but blank

clutched to the heart

a profound inhale

swallows the scent of fresh

upon its open, an audible yet satisfying, crack

like a sculpture

it awaits for images to be chiseled out

each fresh page – a new hope

each finished page – a masterpiece

…or at least an opportunity to cultivate craft

this potential work of art at its finish

will be altered

with your soul attached

each thought – each dream – each philosophy

allowed to breathe,  granted life

free to grow beyond a thought

becoming tattered and worn

weight added, becoming matter

beloved composition, an objet d’art

what wonders lie within the notebook

awaiting release

 this is the start

and just as a new year begins

 all is hopeful.
