The Watch That Keeps Time

In Response To:

Word Of The Day Challenge – Hope

As I prepare to enter

into the new year

I ponder the good times 

before this year that

seem of a long time ago

finding them hard to remember…

~

As 2020 is laid to rest

with its devastation of

too many lost lives and

the Wisdom gained 

from painful lessons

due to lack of uninformed

choices driven by fear…

~

I now meditate on 

the new times with

faith they will become a

reality of cherished memories…

~

Alas, patience must persevere

while suffering through the surge

before the new times arrive so

I will let hope be the watch

that keeps time 

making it worth the wait!

Word For The Day…

From:  Gratefulness.org

We are all at once both a composition and a composer. We have the ability not only to compose the future of our own lives, but to help compose the future of everyone around us and the communities in which we live.

The Visit

Word Of The Day Challenge – Zone

Reena’s Exploration Challenge # 101 – Moving on to this week, here’s an image prompt….

As a grown man looks into the conical zone

of his mind’s memories captured with silhouetted shadows

filled with the pain of his early childhood traumas

he remembers a frozen moment in time as a young boy

seeking purpose and waiting for an answer, he 

stood still holding the lamp switch and it was then

that he heard from two angels appearing as airplanes

and they began to speak this message to him 

that would forever change his life:

 

“In order for you to fly My son, you must turn on the light

to chase away the dark shadows of your past, and move forward 

into the plan and promises I have waiting for you.” 

 

The boy then, although fearful turned on the light as he

was instructed and the shadows were chased away and he

filled with the faith to move forward into the plan and promises 

to live beyond what his imagination could ever imagine!
