Unspoken Message #poetry


Does your hem leave a message

“I was here” in the dust

one last passing memory

a soft remaining touch

 your hand ever steady

sweep the last of the day

fingers part foggy mist

like a scene in a play

as our lives ever on

there is so much to say

but to friends it’s enough

gentle kiss blow your way

The prompt at A Prompt Each Day: Through Thick and Through Thin just seems what friends are and what they do…

I am grateful to each of you for the gentle words you say, the laughter you leave behind, and the Smiles!

  1. Gorgeous images there. I, too, thought of the woman with the issue of blood touching the Savior’s hem. Always hopeful of making a lasting impact on friends and, thereby, maybe a modest corner of the world. Very grateful for you, my friend.


  2. __Often, that, that you didn’t want to have happened, becomes a personal, and valued keepsake. _m

    Dust meets the damp, to stain the cloth I wear,
    This traveled dye remains, to say that I was there.
