Just is the word prompt for #FiveMinuteFriday and Day 21 of #write28days. The idea is to write for five minutes when we hear the prompt. No need to edit or make it perfect, because it’s meant as a fun exercise.
Sometimes I begin to write, and the words come quickly. Other times I have a hard time thinking of anything at first.
My mind goes all over the place until I finally settle. Often, I take more than five minutes, but I don’t think anyone minds. Tonight’s word, like many words, has several meanings, and I chose one of the more simple definitions.
My writing has been on a more serious note lately. So tonight I decided to have some fun and write a simple poem.
I did not write it in five minutes, but it didn’t take very long. It’s pretty much a simple description of my day.
Just Another Day
Just another day in the
rolling waves of time
nothing significant or
out of the ordinary
Just another rain filled sky
sun came out a bit
only to turn back again
not ready to dry the earth
Just another day inside
resting and waiting
keeping busy writing words
napping cat curled on my lap
Just another rainy night
Hands poised above the keyboard
waiting for inspiration
Though my day was pretty ordinary, it was still a good day. There was time to rest, time to listen to a podcast and a writing seminar and time to chat with a friend. I enjoyed family time, ate some delicious homemade soup and even watched an episode of the show, Jeeves and Wooster. There was also time to look through old photographs which brought back lots of memories. I am truly blessed.
What about you? How was your day? I’d love to hear from you.
