FMF: Bloom # a conversation with myself

Do not despair my love,

Even when the darkness overcomes the light,

And the clouds cover the sun,

And the rain pours as it thunders

When the only source of light is a lightening

And the only proof you are alive is a faint heartbeat.


Do not give up on life

or the things that mattered at first

because you are in darkness

Darkness is proof

that light exists

and you can never fully appreciate daylight

if you didn’t know that night has passed.

When morning comes,

When the rain dries out

You will be refreshed

the sun will shine on you

and you will say to your fellow soldiers

“We made it through the night,




“On Fridays around these parts we like to write. Not for comments or traffic or anyone else’s agenda. But for pure love of the written word. For joy at the sound of syllables, sentences and paragraphs all strung together by the voice of the speaker.

We love to just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. For five minutes flat.

Here’s how we do it:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing.

2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog’s footer}.

3. Go and tell the person who linked up before you what their words meant to you. Every writer longs to feel heard.
