joining up with the lovely gypsy mama for a little writing prompt fun.
5 minutes. no editing. just write.
today’s prompt was to pick a picture to getcha started.
i picked this lovely from our jaunt to NYC before christmas . . .
nancy’s boots were made for walking, but not these. these boots were made for jumping, and jumping high.
when two or more are gathered, extra lift is given . . . to jump and pose and smile, for the ground is far below, and with it worries, troubles, and the harsh thud of landing. the soles of those airborne show wear, tear, and scraping to get along, carrying burdensome dirt several times shaken. but the souls are lifted higher than they even dare to reach, for in that moment of freedom, before gravity pulls them back to earth, their faces betray truth.
in the space between ground and sky , there is great freedom to soar.
it’s tough not to go back and tweak. look for a better way to paint my word picture. but it’s fun just to get my paints out and try something new!
thanks gypsy mama :) see you next week!
