The rules are simple:
- She decides on a one-word writing prompt. This week it is "CLOSE".
- Bloggers everywhere set their timers for five minutes.
- Our pens fly....can you hear the frantic scritchety-scratch?
- We publish our five-minute masterpiece & share with the world.
In the things I love, heaven is close.
In things seen...
A sun setting,
a bird on the air,
a dandelion puff blown by my child.
In things heard...
a roosters crow,
thunder in storms,
my child's pure squeals of delight.
In things felt...
the rays of the sun,
mud between toes,
my child's arms squeezing my neck.
In things smelled...
the flowers abloom,
freshly mowed grass,
my child's mound of messy hair.
In things tasted...
my child's tears as I kiss them away.
yes, heaven is close.
upon me, in fact.
in the form of my child.
