Five Minute Friday

I am participating in Five Minute Friday again over at The Gypsy Mama.

The rules?  Write for 5 minutes without stopping to correct or edit.

Today's topic?  Distance.



Distance is all very relative,  you see
What's far for you may be close for me.

It also depends on the time and day
and how you chose to go your way.

My bed seems impossibly far away
When I have 3 kids to sleep before me at the end of the day

But then I can honestly say with heart
That sometimes people are never far apart

I have friends here and there around the world
In Canada is one very special girl

In France you will find and boy and his baby
And in Russia is a new family in the making

These friends are far apart by miles
But just thinking of them brings on the smiles

They are never far from my heart and mind
And I know that they feel for me in kind

So the distance between us is no big thing
It's just a shout through the heartstrings

So distance can't really be defined
What's far from home is always close in heart and mind

And that is what I have to say
On this five minute Friday!

Whew!  That's it for me...let's look and see what fell from my 'pen' today!


  1. Loved it! Poetry thrills me and to see words that rhyme. I got giddy reading your lyrical prose, thank you!

  2. I love your take on distance, it really cheered me up.

  3. Very nice! And it rhymes! I can't rhyme even when I have more than five minutes.
