Just a Little Hope Is Needed

Just a little hope is needed

like a ray of sun
shining in the earth

like the taste of wet stone
in the water

like a fish leaping
on wet sand

Just a little hope is needed

like a song remembered
in the throat of a mute

like a sigh
stopped in the chest

like the longing of an insect
clinging to glass

like thirst
drowned in the river-bed

Just a little hope is needed
