Close

The word for this Friday is:


Close

start:

I search the depths
and cannot find the ending
I call your name
it echoes in the emptiness
There is no
purchase for my feet
The ground slants
steep
I reach to touch your
face
and feel the emptiness
of space
I empty my hands
in surrender

You draw me close.

stop

Linking to Lisa-Jo and Five Minute Friday

Stopping by from Five Minute Friday. Thank you for your words. At the end of yet another draining and challenging week, they were a quiet reminder to me to let go and allow myself to be drawn close. Lovely.

Beautiful post. I loved visiting you. I read your profile at the top. I can't wait to read your sometime novel. Good luck on that! I would love to follow you. I am back to blogging after a little absence. It was nice to meet you today. Thanks for such a beautiful post.

Hi Linda,

I really enjoyed them all but I really like Unsung Heros. It was a beautiful post. I will definitely come back to visit you. I noticed your from Texas. I am a neighbor we live in the DFW area. It was very nice to meet you sweet neighbor sister.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day,
