Flash 55 Friday

The Visitor

When you came to me in the mental ward
you told me, like an angel,
I was pregnant with possibilities.
Just then a great power flowed
like a spark of creation through
your fingertip pressed against my own.
In that instant I ceased to be wretched
and became a woman ripe with life.

There's my 55 words, even though it's only Thursday evening here.

I think the best 55's come from real life experiences. This one is so filled with power. I loved it!

Cat said...

and I often wonder if we were told we were pregnant with possibility from the day we were born would it have made a difference in our outcome...

Beautiful 55!

During one period of my life,
I visited the psycho ward in our local hospital each Thursday or Friday for nearly ten years. I carried an AA meeting there, and many is the miracle I witnessed, things happening on a higher plane of spirituality than usual. All in that room.

Several peeps now--former patients there--stop to remind me of the fact that they stayed sober from the first meeting there X number of years before.

I just LOVE that fingertip-to-fingertip pressing, culminating in a great change.

PEACE!
