Play // Five Minute Friday
Thrilled to be writing among the beautiful Five Minute Friday community. This is where we write for just five minutes, on a word prompt. We don’t worry about perfection or making it just right, but rather allow the words to flow freely without over thinking. If you’ve never written for the Five Minute Friday, come join us. You will be glad you did!
Summer brings long days of sunshine and warm nights. When I was a child, I lived for nights of Kick the Can, Hide N Go Seek, Hopscotch, Jump Rope and bike riding. I would play outside with friends for hours until I heard the voice of my mother telling me it was time to come in.
Life today doesn’t afford me a lot of play time, or so it seems. My days are spent working and my nights are filled with cooking, cleaning, running the kids here and there and taking care of my family. But if I were to allow myself time to play outside on a warm summer night, here are some things I imagine I would do:
fly a kite
run through the sprinklers
dip my toes in the creek
chase a fire fly
eat s’mores by the fire
sleep under the stars
ride a ferris wheel
catch a movie at the drive in theatre
worship around the camp fire
walk on the beach at sunset
