A Poem and A Picture



Lighthouses are symbolic of hope and peace. Do you have a picture of a lighthouse hanging on the wall? Many people do. This one was drawn by a fifth grader in one of my art classes last year. Lighthouses inspire poets, too. I've included mine--entitled #1 and #2.

#1
A lighthouse stands
            Alone
Sending a beam of hope
across the waves.
Never-failing
            True,
Leading me home.


#2
Wind and rain
Buffet my sails and
And I flounder,
      Adrift.
The rocks loom close
But the light beam
Shows the way
To my safe harbor.
