Flash Friday 55: Soul's Whispers on Penelope



When things seem wrong in many directions,
It takes courage and wisdom to stay upright.
Think of Penelope,
Wooed by dozens of odious suitors,
Threatened by living without her love
who was at the Trojan war,
Still, she believed that
Odysseus would find his way via turbulence
to light upon her shore
by remaining faithful.
