Five Minute Friday: Quiet [Roots]

Quiet Roots

Underneath, beneath the ground . . .

Do you ever ask what shall I do this day?

Or do you just stay the course?

The course of spreading out

Soaking in nutrients

Seeking moisture

Storing energy

Do you ever wonder what you will be?

Do you know if you support a tree

Or do you know you are a tuber, like

a sweet potato or a red one?


Oh, I wish I were a root . . .

Without a care in the world

Just meandering, wandering

Never wondering

Just being . . .
Linking up with:

Five Minute Friday

  1. Hi Megan, I enjoyed reading your blog this morning, but couldn't find a way to comment. I so resonated, because I LOVE to meet with the Lord in my journal. It's a quiet, safe place, and it takes time. I think that that is a good thing…..luxuriating in time with Jesus. Bless you for writing on your blog what you did. And in journaling classes, we often do a "five-minute sprint." It's amazing how much one can say in a brief space of time. Blessings, Lynn Morrissey

  2. Lynni- I am always suprised by the five minute fridays and the direction a single word takes us…I actually combined last week's word (roots) with this week's word (quiet) and then this little poem started scribbling itself on the page 🙂 I love our Creator who gives us creative moments…Love-Kel

  3. thanks for stopping by and enjoying the quiet with me…I always have been fascinated by roots…it was Five Minute Friday's word last week and I was out of town…so I combined the words today and this is what came to the surface…

I love a dialogue. Be the first to start a discussion!
