Leap of Faith

Submitted for One Stop Poetry - One Shoot Photography
Sunday (Picture Prompt)! 10 April 2011

A leap of faith
within confines
while tethered
to the ground.

I jump!

With effort, I float
pined….
in my virtual cage
surrounded
by my hope.

Dried and withered
trying… to break free
through concrete
and….
across my vision
I can see

The colour of life
and the greenery
with…
a leap of faith
life begins
just beyond the trees.

  2. Excellent interpretation of the prompt. The emotional aspect to your lines is compelling and easy to understand why the leap had been taken.

  7. Jump, leap, move...life is not a solitary thing. It is the motion, the adventure, that carries us into life, in all its beauty. Inspirational, as all before me say, and an emotional delivery for the prompt. Will we be caged by hope - or will we reach for it?
