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

You’re more than welcome to visit my other blog, ThusNSuch

    The claim before the storm;

    a calm following the stream.

    Quite a rush, true to form,

    viewed always as they theme.

        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

        Well, you must have the correct address since we received this email. We receive a ton of email and have also been traveling. Perhaps, it got lost in the shuffle. Please resend and thanks!
