write to life

21 Jan

*joining up with lisa-jo for some more five-minute-friday fun. what a great way to stretch your writing muscles and reflect on the week. today’s prompt: write to life the most unique person you encountered while out and about this week*



it rolls of the tongue. though i’ve never heard it spoken, i know it demands a smile in saying.


kind potter, gentle salesmen, far-away merchant.

your voice i cannot hear, but your joy is evident. pride for a son who brings mere paper to life and sprouts his own wings too soon.


i trust that if i hopped a plane to san fransisco you would welcome me into your home and show me the clay, the wheel, the hands that brought this teacup to life.

that’s just the kind of guy you are. each and every mitsuko my future holds will meet my kindest smile in your honor.

the end!
