Hi Everyone- I’m linking up at five minute Friday and writing unhindered, for five minutes on this one-word prompt: “Nothing”.

here goes…


What’s wrong?


You seem upset. Are you sure nothing’s wrong?

I’m sure. Nothing.


You think you’ve shared nothing, friend, but I’ve heard you loud and clear.

Because I know you, I can hear nothing and listen.

You have shared your life with me for many years, so now I can make something out of your nothing.

Another day, you might be able to turn your nothing into words. But today, you don’t have to.

Today, I will give my presence, understanding, and prayer.

And what do you need to give?

No words. No explanation. No pretending.

Nothing, friend.

And you will still have my everything.
