To Trust and Allow


I asked for a miracle    
it wasn’t granted        
or so I thought

Turns out                         
I didn’t recognize it,         
so certain was I of     
how it would look  

Turns out
the Universe upgraded       
to a newer version       
perfect for me         

Turns out
I am again awestruck by    
the power of trusting     
and allowing   



The Ring

   5 Word Story Prompt:   OPEN | ROCK | RING | ACT | LETTER 


on her
favorite rock
she sat, tablet open
penning an act of kindness from
her heart

the ring
enclosed with her
letter, shattered his love
rendering her words more cruel
than kind

The Secret Keeper
