Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge – Sanctuary

Sue W and GC are the hosts of Weekly Prompts

“Within you, there is a stillness and sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.” ~ Hermann Hesse.

This week the Weekend Challenge from partner GC and me is Sanctuary.

Humans provided rescue centres that became sanctuaries for wildlife and abandoned pets, but what you, where is your sanctuary – your retreat, your refuge and place of peace and quiet. 

How you choose to translate the challenge is entirely up to you – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme. 

Please tag Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge.



If only………….

You were with me today, I would

Rest my head in your lap and share my troubles with you

You were my safe haven, my sanctuary in the storm

With you, I felt safe from all that was threatening me

By your side I felt that no harm will come to me

My trust in you was unwavering, unshakable

If only……….

You were with me today

  1. Been eleven years now that my mom has been gone… not one day goes by without me wishing for that connection, friend, sanctuary, love to still be a part of my life. What a beautiful poem you wrote for this prompt.
