Take ThreeIt was very dark and very early when Mary's flight landed in Chicago's O'Hare airport. She turned on her cell phone as she left the plane. The bright screen told her the time. 6:30 AM. What time was it where she had come from? What time was it back home? Further west meant earlier and further east meant later, but how much? She shook her head slightly. It didn't matter; it wasn't really a different time. It wasn't as if she could call home and find out about the future. Speaking of calling, though...she found a number in her phone and called, moving out of the crowd of airline passengers to where she could hear the soft ring of her call being sent. Someone answered on the other end.
"Sorry, Anita. Did I wake you?"
"My plane landed. I'll be there in about an hour. Everything going okay?"
HopeHope is the seed that is planted
by some insignificant remark
something someone said
that no one really noticed
not even you
but suddenly that hope was there
that ridiculous dream
it sprouted in the back of your mind
and it grew and it grew
completely unnoticed until it was so big
it began to push things out of the way
to make room
it knocked something over
something you were thinking about
what was it again?
fell out of sight
collected dust for a long time...
and you found that hope
and you told yourself
what a silly idea!
but nonetheless you wished
you did hope
so you nurtured the hope
you helped it to grow
feeding it with what ifs
those what ifs made it larger every day
leading up to that moment
when it could blossom into something greater
and as that moment approached
you thought of nothing else
and you watched
and you waited
and then the moment was gone
and the hope shriveled away into nothing
no matter what you did
you tried to replenish it with more what ifs
