Living On Less Than A Prayer

Tippled one drop from the tincture tonic,
taking a chance that map of awareness
wouldn’t need a big blast to enhance
her thinking.

Softly tinted candlelight swayed with hope
and belief in sacred synchronicity,
that an integral answer would be found
precisely when needed.

    This is tight. Well done. I am deeply, deeply enamored of the word “tippled” here. 😉


  16. Pamela says:

    Love the last stanza, Elizabeth, so much wisdom in your words. Happy New Year, my friend. Hugs to you.



  17. Sherry Marr says:

    My friend, I think you have written EXACTLY where I am at right now. LOVE your title.


  18. Stormcat says:

    Seems rather like living on only prayer because nothing else is available?


  19. That was lovely! The words blended together to make a hopeful thought.


  20. Mary says:

    I always hope that just the right answer WILL appear. Sometimes they do! Happy new year, Elizabeth.

    Don’t talk to me about tippling the tonic! Thank heavens those days are past. Sorry to say I didn’t get too many answers then. Good luck with your efforts.


  22. Sabra Bowers says:

    Sacred synchronicity…I believe. Well wordled.


  23. Rachel Hoyt says:

    Beautiful words! The answers are within. “Sacred synchronicity”… awesome.


  24. For me the answers rarely come when needed, and arrive annoyingly in the middle of the night.


  25. humbird says:

    Love ‘ map of awareness’…close to me the idea of finding the answer , when it needed


  26. That title pulled me right in. I love ‘sacred synchronicity.’
