Five Minute Friday: Gentle

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.

when I trip over the truth
are my soft place to land

when betrayal has bruised my soul
bring the balm

when fear speeds through my veins
teach me to breathe again

This prompt was a gift—writing these words wrapped me up with peace today.

  1. I love the simplicity and depth of your words. That sounds odd that something could be both simple and deep, but they go straight to the heart without making it complicated. That leaves room for the reader’s thoughts on the matter. Thanks. Your FMF neighbor.
