Five Minute Friday- Grow


On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.

For fun, for love of the sound of words, for play, for delight, for joy and celebration at the art of communication.

For only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just writewithout worrying if it’s just right or not.

Won’t you join us?

Here are the rules:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.

2. Link back here and invite others to join in.

3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:

Today’s prompt is:  Grow

Ready? GO!

It’s amazing how quickly life grows when it’s watered and fed properly, isn’t it?  How saplings and buds and puppies and children become trees and flowers and dogs and young men and women….in just a heartbeat….with love and care and warmth and nourishment–they all grow so fast, so beautiful.

It’s amazing how quickly death grows when it’s watered and fed, isn’t it?  How irritation and hurt and sadness and disappointment become anger and self-loathing and resentment and discrimination….in just a hearbeat….with fatty, greasy junk–they all grow so fast, so ugly.  

Amazing to me how growth occurs….it’s all about the input isn’t it?  It’s all about the focus.  Today I choose to grow beauty. Today I choose to grow life.
