To run from here and find a quiet place …


I’m delighted that so many friends are offering pieces for the Five Minute Friday party. This one is from Sarah; our first piece in poetry form.

Voices ring like claxons in my head

My eyes assaulted by a coloured blur

The mingled scents of humans in my nose

The acrid taste of fear invades my mouth

Surrounded by too much to take it in

Each sense clamours for my minds review

Each touch, sight, smell or sound another blow

I cannot comprehend the things I feel

So buffeted in every sense I stand

And standing in itself becomes a fight

My younger self trying to wrest control

To run from here and find a quiet place

Then deep within speaks a familiar voice

‘Be still my child, and know that I am God’

And quiet returns to still my anxious soul

For even in the turmoil, He is peace


Why not join us? Write for 5 minutes on the subject of CROWDS. Post it on your blog and link up to mom blogger Lisa-Jo Baker using the linky on her site.

Alternatively, if you don’t have a blog, post it in the comment section on her website or send it to me and I’ll post it for you. You’re welcome!.

What is Five Minute Friday?

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FiveMinuteFriday

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is, “CROWDS’
