Five Minute Friday: From

Every Friday, I spend five minutes or so writing on a word prompt from the Five Minute Friday community. Then, I hit publish. Good for the writing muscles and for cultivating a playful approach to the writing work that can sometimes be taken oh-so-seriously.


you
dear heart
standing still on the path
shrouded in mist/ery
seeking any map
for forward marching;

you
say no trail is too steep
and no journey is too long
but you don’t know which way—
these roads that lie atop each other
feel like crosshairs of Failure
and you wear a crimson 
target on your back.

you
ask one question:
could it be
there is no knowing
which way
to walk without
first figuring
where you’ve come
from?


You can find the link-up for today’s prompt here.


Choosing a direction might just be the hardest part of the journey. If you’re a writer looking to share your work on the internet, this is especially true. Having someone from outside your head hear what’s in it can be the catalyst you need to make progress.
