My Trip

Twenty hours on the road
my destination near
I cross the road which changed my life
and took my child here
I moved on more to the one spot
where he and him both lay
As tears roll down my withered cheeks
for here they both will stay
One more drive and then I’ll be
where love and warmth exist
where happiness and healthy food
are part of this long tryst
The biggest part is coming soon
where my true love awaits
For my dear daughter will be here
her stress can now abate.

For hundreds it was a means of escape from troubled times in a troubled land.
The carts were drawn by hand, no engines or horses, diligent men risking all to save their women folk and offspring through the night by torchlight.

Trying my best: Compilation 07/05/2022

A chip of chalcedony, handled with two hands
ambidextrous fondling, tenacity expands
Like a vaccination shot released, a controversial dose
Provenance is here but gone, a chip of history’s close
Training to the naked eye, food for thought ingest
Like macaroni for the feast, I merely try my best.

*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.

Thank you for participating!
