The Journey

Saddened thoughts cry out

to hasten life is heavy

tears request purpose

Joyful thoughts cry out

tranquil peace a welcome lull

smiles request purpose


This week’s event is to write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word hasten. Held weekly at Patricia’s Place

    • Very nice. Thank you for joining in.


      • I was just riffing your poem,
        trying to get your attention.
        You had me, coming & going,
        and by the way, did I mention,
        You have mail.

        Seriously, I sent you an email several days ago. Did it find its way to you? I need to follow up with another, soon as I know I sent it to the right address.
        It’s all good. Happy TGIF
