Out of shadows

Beautiful thoughts that touched my heart. Thank you, Joy!

Poetry Joy

Welcome to my first Five Minute Friday post here. I’ve been writing them for some time over at Words of Joy.

It’s a challenging creative writing exercise where we write freely, as it comes, pouring out words in 5 minutes flat in response to a one word prompt, with no over-thinking or editing. Then we link back, and read the post next to us to encourage one another.

I have found that memories often rise deep from a well within, and a degree of soul-searching occurs. Most of my attempts lean toward the poetic. Such is today’s offering.

The prompt is:‘She’ 


‘Hope rising’


Some days she is shadow

mere wraith

going about her ways


as grey smoke

insubstantial, barely there


between colours vibrant

alive and bright

while she moves silent,


out of mind and sight

dull, invisible

energy quenched

nothing left

except vapour

and mist disappearing

when One calls

her name
