To see other Visual Poetry and Writing
by me, Tea of Tea Photography, feel free to check out this Sub-Gallery:



Just something very simple.

I've not make any kind of visual poetry piece in a long time.

For us all:

This is for anyone who needs hope. Well, I think perhaps we all do need hope, or could use some sort of amount of it, to get by in life, as a matter of a type fuel.

But, in particular this is for anyone who has been seriously IN NEED of hope. :aww:

I know, I made this specifically for the therapeutic value I hoped to start off the year with for my own self.

I have had so much trouble during this past year, and there is very few people, and I also do mean here on dA, who know just how bad the year has been and to what extents, and it's just as well...

... and it's been exceptionally difficult right up to the very end, too. So I know that things aren't going to suddenly improve just because the date has! :lol:

However, in the past, I've had a lot of difficulty with the concept of "Hope" :nod: and I realize that this can be natural when a person goes through a lot of various "stuff" over and over... It's just true,
and yet, I've pulled myself up by my bootstraps over and over,
and another thing that seems to be true, is that, "Hope" is all there is. :nod:

When there seems to be nothing left, there IS hope, and if we can't find it, we've got to CREATE IT! :w00t:

I made this a "WE" thing, because, I also know I'm not alone.
Even if the struggles are not quite the same, I know there are so many others who have had a very very tough year, :hmm:
and maybe they are wishing for changes this coming year, or wishing to be able to make those changes. :aww:
Maybe also, there is a couple of risks some of us are wanting to take in the coming year, that will really help things progress into a positive direction. :aww:
Any or all of these things are propelled by hope, first and foremost.
We have to first be able to believe that hope can still exist, and sometimes this is still the hardest thing for for some of us.
I've felt this way, before.

But, I am moving forward in 2011. I have to, in order to have ANY hope for improvement upon the year before!
And I also wish for improvements for my friends and anyone who are also in need of hope and better things for the coming year!! :w00t:
:rose: :heart:


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]

i truly hope that this year brings better things for you; it sounds like things have not been going too well for you in the past. hope is something we all need, and it is good of you to share your art with the rest of us who struggle as well. so in thanks for that sharing, i will not only leave you a comment, but i am going to fave it as well, because i would like to have it to refer back to any time i may need a little lift of hope. and as well, others may see it as well and get some from it as well. thank you for it, and i will be back to see the rest of your gallery soon. :)

Hello there and thank you so very much for taking the time to come by here and make such a wonderful and supportive comment. :aww:
I know I am late it replying to it, but it is all me, and not you!
Because when I have read this finally now, I am very much touched by this, and I thank you for it. :hug:
Thank you for the :+fav: too. It all means so much to me. :nod:
Hope IS something we really do all need. Because once we do lose it, then we really are in some trouble. :hmm:
You are right about some pretty difficult struggles and challenges I have been having for a while, but I do use my art as a way of self-therapy and expression and it does help me, and if it can in ANY way help anyone else even a little bit, a long the way, then even BETTER! :D :heart:

Very beautiful image and poem, Tea! :heart:
Of course, there is hope, there is always hope even when things seem to get worse and worse, it is what makes us to go on. Hope is positive, it is driving us to go further and then better things will happen. :hug:
