Five Minute Friday — Awake

Each week has a Friday, many weeks I join Gypsy Mama and Five Minute Friday ‘for fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication’.

This week’s writing prompt is AWAKE!


UP, UP it’s a new year!

the old year is asleep

the year is over and done.

Up, up it’s a new year!

New lists

new visions

new resolution

not resolutions but resolution

a firm decision to begin anew

Not wallowing in regrets, self recriminations, accusations

But bowing, humbly, dying, praying

Getting courage, strength, hope


Daniel 10:12,  Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. . . .  And said, O man greatly beloved, fear not: peace be unto thee, be strong, yea, be strong. And when he had spoken unto me, I was strengthened, and said, Let my lord speak; for thou hast strengthened me.

Believing ‘a certain man’ is just the same today.

UP, UP it’s a new year!
