I am participating in Kat McNally’s April Moon 14, a two week reflective writing challenge. Each day, Kat sends an email with a single word prompt to spark some time during the powerful time between the total lunar eclipse and the full moon. Participate with us!
The prompt for day nine is
What feelings does this word evoke? What sorts of memories does it recall? Which of your senses start to tingle? How would you represent what this word means to you?
Yearning is a word filled with such negative connotations. There is always something desired, something missed, something needed.
I have yearned for peace.
I have yearned for quiet.
I have yearned for stability.
I have yearned for love.
I have yearned for resolution.
I have yearned for health.
I have yearned for family.
I continue to yearn for ease.
I yearn for a child.
There is little positive in yearning – it is done in
Yearning. Striving. Seeking. Questing.
