Another Five Minute Friday has come around again! I always enjoy these exercises. Why? Because I never know how they will come out. It is often as big a surprise to me where this five minutes will end up as it is to my readers.
- Who dreamt up this clever, fun exercise? Gypsy Mama whose real name is Lisa Jo.
- What are the rules? Write for 5 minutes and stop. Don’t pass go, don’t collect $200! You are done.
- I proofread mine and add a photo and links. Then it is on its way.
- I almost forgot! The final and most important rule? Add some blog love to the person ahead of you on Lisa’s blog…and to any others you want.
When I come home from work, it is dark outside.
Most people are asleep in their homes.
The roads are quiet and dark.
Stores are closed up tight.
It is usually midnight.
I take my shower and get into comfy sleepwear.
Heating up a cup of chai latte and curling up on the couch or a nearby soft chair…
Ahhh! I stretch out all the sore muscles…particularly in my neck and shoulders.
The busyness of the evening eases.
Sometimes I start a load of laundry.
Out comes the computer, words on a page. My favorite things.
I curl up and read, write…and sip!
Here and there on the web. Finishing a post here.
Jotting a note there. Meeting a new friend over there.
And learning as I go.
I am awake…for awhile. It is peaceful and quiet.
The labors of the day ease. My body relaxes.
Usually, my mind starts to settle down too. I get tired…and go to bed.
Awake? Not for now. But soon.
New challenges await in the morning. New twists on truths I have known.
God changes me while I write…and think.
The sun rises…and after a few hours…I’m awake!
