Mag #176: Statue de la Liberté....

Supermoon, 1013 Julio Cortez AP

Challenge by The Mag (Magpie Tales)
Photo presented by Tess Kincaid

standing proud
Lady Liberté
illuminated by a super moon
a celestial drum roll
for your re-opening
after repairs
from hurricane Sandy

your strength
of integrity
shines hope 
to every soul
craving a new start
each set of eyes
who experience
the welling of pride
and emotion
when first
meeting her

we need a symbol
some thing
to bring us back
to what is 
really the most
non judgment
and love

Hope does indeed spring eternal, which is as it should be. Very well done!

Wonderful poem. It put me in mind of a line from an Emily Dickinson poem: "that love is all there is/ Is all we know of love." :-)
