Late Night Poetry #18: A Quiet Revolution

By Aziz Acharki on Unsplash

Hope is a revolution.

It sings with the dawn,
in the trees,
the autumn gold leaves
burnished with the rising sun.

Hope is a quiet promise.

It whispers in the wind,
always moving,
lifting the fallen leaves
towards the scattered sky.

Hope is the voice that never dies.
