I’m still having fun with Alex Price’s #CinquainPrompt each day. Today’s prompt was “mine” and my response came quite easily:
I rise early
watch the snowflakes drift, fall
A sudden luxury of time…
I can’t remember when we last had a snow day. What a gift! I have all sorts of noble intentions, but keep finding myself drawn outside to take photographs, to watch the birds, to tilt my head back and watch the flakes appear as if by magic from the grey sky.
The gift of time
as surely as snowflakes falling
transforms the day
layer snow-laden limbs
I’m so thankful.
