Flash Fiction Friday- a moment of silence


every friday write a short story, poem, prose or 
limerick of 55 words, no more, no less and then report it to the G-man!!!

have you ever sat in silence and listened to angels sing
trusting in your faith so blind and feeling invisible wings

 i feel it beating softly behind my ears
this serenity brings me to tears

a moment of silence each night i cherish
one hit is all it will take for all this to perish

here you go g-man i am heading to a meeting tonight, the first one since my birthday. i will get my hug and  share a bit of how i did it. the big night will come on the first friday of february when i go and celebrate with two other women in the program. they also celebrate 6 years in the month of january they are my clean time buddies. it is a special thing to have them in my life today. my favorite sound is that moment of silence, we take at every meeting, to pray, to hope, to listen, to ask. that moment of silence got me in the rooms and saved my life. it is that moment where anything is possible. remember that feeling? that time when you felt like the world was out there and you could do anything? i feel that today and everyday as i learn to stand in my own truth, it is not easy, it is scary but it feels good. different. and good. if i am restless tonight i will stop by and check out all the players, if not i will stop by during coffee in the morning.

Isn't it amazing what a moment of silence can hold? Some of the biggest moments of my life were held in silence.

Umn, I know and love those moments. Looking forward to some later at home with my guitar. (At library now, fast computers here.)

Awesome to hear of your 6 years!
