Five Minute Friday: Bare
I didn't intend to stay up until midnight! I had grand plans of going to bed by 10pm... but I was working on these character sketches for my Creative Writing class... and then I popped on twitter and got swept up in the fellowship and encouragement that is the #FMFParty... and before I knew it, it was 11:30 so I figured I'd just stick it out and see what I could come up with at midnight for five minutes on the prompt... (even though my brain doesn't work well this late at night!)
The trees are bare, the air is bare, my soul is bare... I'm not a huge fan of the late fall, early winter, dry winter. I sink into darkness, I miss the sunshine. My heart is bare. (and my mind is a little bare, too)
I've never been a huge fan of snow (funny, because I grew up near Buffalo, NY). and last winter, I didn't complain at all that it barely snowed twice all season long.
But this year, I'm ready for a good snow storm... like 2 or more feet of snow. Now that the kids can go out and play in the snow for hours on end, I'm ready. Enough of these wimpy 3-4 inches of snow that are just a nuisance and disappear before you can really enjoy them. Give me a snow that lasts for 2 weeks.
That's it. Then I will be ready for spring, for green and flowers, and buds and birds, and freshness all around.
and some sunshine that lasts all day and warms and fills this bare soul of mine.
Are you bare? Will you share your 5 minutes on the prompt bare? ... or you can just leave me a one word sentence in the comments on bare... (I dare you)
