Mother Hope




In 99 words (no more, no less) write about a beacon. It can be from a lighthouse or other source. Use the word literally or figuratively and go where the prompt leads you.




Flashing the red beacon light and a shrill siren announcing urgency, the white metal body 

moves.

A budding life, inhumanly left to wither is picked up with love. The ‘unwanted’ tag is 

abandoned and a new name and home is given.

The wrinkled destitute breathe their last with dignity.

Bodies afflicted with diseases get palliative care.

Women and children counselling programmes uplift the society.

Refugees, prostitutes, street-kids are accommodated.

The selfless Sisters at Missionaries of Charity in the City of Joy spread sunshine under the 

darkest conditions.

The Mother in white and blue sari is a beacon of hope.
