#NaPoWriMo-Day 30-Directions to My Heart

Follow the pathway along my yesterdays. Take a left just past my shortcomings. Take no heed of these and continue. The path will then turn treacherous, dark and vast. At times you will see pitfalls, things hidden from view that may come to light later in your journey. Stay the course.  If you persist, you will come to a valley that expands out to the horizon. This valley is filled with light and laughter, compassion, and wisdom. It seeks your light. This valley gives from its depths and expects the same from you. Followed precisely, these are the directions to my heart. From here you can see your tomorrow. And mine.

*Day 30 of NaPoWriMo! Finally!  While most of the prompts on NaPoWriMo’s website were not of much help to me, I did find this one today that seemed to work for me.  The prompt said to write a poem giving directions to someplace real or imagined.  I’m glad that I participated.  It got me back into my writing groove.  Thank you for following along!
