First-Five Minute Friday for the First time this year

First time back in a long time

First full week of a new year

In the very first month

First time pen in hand for a task such as this

And I wonder, wonder, wonder.......

What firsts will I encounter this year?

Opportunities? Meetings? New faces or places?

It is the first time I look ahead to this new year


And I feel I need to choose the word "HOPE"

for the first time this year

Not because I have tons, but I need some

A whole lot of hope that there will be new

first time pleasures to balance the pains and

disappointments we are all sure to encounter

I hope this for all including myself


Welcome back to my posts for Five Minute Friday. If you are new, it is the time and space where a community of writers and believers who come together to respond to a one word prompt each week. We write for five minutes, non-stop, unedited and let the creativity flow. If you are interested in joining or reading other's posts, check out
