I walk down a cold empty grey street
with closed shops and cracked concrete.
Only ravens fly in the dull cloudy sky
and they make no noise as they pass by.

I come across a broken black flowerpot
that sits grimly in an overgrown lot.
Shattered glass blocks the icy ground
and as I tread through, there is no sound.

I clutch on to a shriveled old Bugloss seed
which grips to life with a ravenous greed.
I bury it deep into a layer of thick brown dirt
and in the flowerpot it will grow and bring us hope.

This piece is about the current economy, and how we can still find hope in small things.
