Five Minute Friday
So many goals swirling in my brain. So many dreams wanting to take root. I see them. They give me hope that new things are wanting to break through. This year I want to take time to hone the craft of writing. Five Minute Friday is a great place for me practice and be encouraged by other writers as I write. I will set the timer for five minutes and then write. Here we go! I am excited to invite you in, welcome.
Take time to heal they say feel your emotions it leads to the healing way How can we heal when the wound keeps getting cracked open? How will our hearts heal when every new tragedy shatters it again and again How can we heal when our collective trauma is now measured in years? How can we heal when we continue to isolate and grief seems to drown us? Come, together we can heal we hold our grief together we heal together We look for beauty together: the peonies anew heal the sun's rays caress tenderly heal the way our hands linger together heals her little bright eyes heal their giggles in the sprinkler heal our voices raised collectively heal our tears shed in community heal our tables set together heal The healing of our souls lead us to action beginning with our hearts gently we lay it down gently we stand brave and fight for justice Justice will always prevail. ~DFD Our hearts are with the families in #uvalde.
