Crave- Five Minute Friday on Saturday morning

Here we are once again. I read the prompt last night, but decided to let it simmer while I slept. Craving connection is something all of us have built into us. The problem becomes when we don't crave it anymore. As frustrating as it can be to not have what you long for and live in the tension of that, at least you know you're alive and not just existing. When we don't feel pain anymore, we're as good as dead. Here is what I cam up with for today.

You pine for something 

You lust and long

Nothing else satisfies

Not even Snickers

The friendly cat who purrs

He keeps brushing up, around,

against your legs

He needs it, too

The ninety-six year old who has

seen more to life than most of us

She rocks, she gazes, she aches

When a visit is over she wants to 

hold on to it and you

The single who comes home to darkness

Night after night, she wants it, too

A touch of a hand, the warmth of a hug

Conversation and smiles to share

Crave we do

  1. Beautiful! Craving that relationship at every age and every stage, it's the way God designed. Although a Snickers bar (or ice cream) might work in a pinch, lol. I'm behind you at FMF this week.

  2. This is beautiful. Thank you for your words.


  3. Such a strong sense of connections in your words. Just beautiful.
