The Path of Blessings-Poetry in Five

Every Friday I write for 5 minutes straight in poetry style (free verse or rhyme depending on what I am able to do with the word of the week) and share it at Lisa Jo’s with a wonderful community of writers, some who have become friends.  I hope you will enjoy your time here each Friday (and beyond!).  Today’s word is REMEMBER.  Let’s see what I can do with it.



The Path of Blessings:

As I traverse this path of life,

I hope to not remember strife.

I hope to leave all woes behind,

And walk with joy the road that winds.

And stop to help my fellow man,

And do good deeds where I can.

And drink in sunshine when it shows,

And stop to bend where flowers grow.

And dance in rain , and sing in storms-

Embracing life in all its forms.

Though life so full of trials be,

May these eyes mostly blessings see.
