They Say Bluebirds Offer Hope

Written by Alyssa Diamond

hope arrives when the heart is heaviest

blue with melancholy and doubt

dragging its wings through the flood waters

its existence submerged with lungs full of ocean and ozone

blue is the color of sorrow, mourning, and the rain

it is also the color of the sky and hope never forgets flight

never forgets the sky

even underwater

hope arrives when the heart is heaviest and offers its waterlogged wings
