Just Hope
Rev. Hardy H. Kim

Palms of Peace

Are they the green and waving fronds
of triumph at the city gate,
lively now, but soon to wither,
crumble into dust?
Or are they palms that stretch,
though smashed and broken,
to embrace this withered world
and tender it to late
yet lasting life?

―J. Barrie Shepherd
