Sudden encounter with Hope

Life inspires, life sometimes lets us down, but the very same life happens to surprise us equally , when we understand just how capable we are of standing up, again and again.

Mine is mainly a travel blog, albeit , VERY new but I hope to continue with the little I have to share about my journeys and life as it comes to me. I happened to read a post on a popular blogger network , regarding TV Show, specifically “a moment or the entire T.V show as it is, that created an impact in your life” –  and remembered my encounter with Hope , by Emily Dickinson.

I understand that this is regarding a TV Show. But as much as it is about the TV show, it is also about the impact in ones life. This poem is significant to me. I found a very beautiful quote that inspires me till now. My encounter with this was due to the fact that I was watching “Criminal minds“, a popular TV show. The serial is equally famous for providing a quote after each episode, many of those really witty and at times beautiful. One such episode, the quote was the first few lines of the poem..

‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And it had something, that made me want more of this, and I searched for it until I found it in its entirety…with the next few lines as …

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I’ve heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

And because of the selfless, little feathered thing, that sings in all our souls do we keep warm through the many ups and downs of life, and have courage to continue with the journey, even take up a new one. That is what provides us more room to discover the world and perhaps discover ourselves a bit more each time.

Inspiring? Yes.

So my dear friend, do you also have a certain moment that helped you get something that inspires you till date and keeps a candle lit even in the coldest of nights for you? Did it also come from a TV serial?

Let me know in the comment section below! 🙂
