A poem about hope for the Scottish Book Trust 'Scotland's Stories' Challenge

Green Shoots of Hope

I woke this morning to rain.

Again.

May was never so wet.

And yet, I had a hunch.

Shrugged on my coat and ventured out before lunch

To see if peas I'd sown had swollen

Under damp loam

And, skins bursting,

Had pushed shy green tips into the light.

They had!
