Five Minute Friday- Beautiful
Five Minute Friday time! Drop everything and just write for 5 minutes then stop, and share what you've got! Today's prompt- Beautiful
Beautiful- when friends gather and babies laugh and marshmallows ooze between chocolate and grahams.
Sparklers spray and watermelon drips and even the ants join in.
The sky bursts with color and noise and smokes wraps like a gentle cloak as the whole neighborhood celebrates as one.
Far off soldiers keep the watch and send prayers home. They sweat and watch and "soldier on" so our babies can tuck in safe and cool while we watch the fire die and reminisce with friends.
This freedom that we know so well we forget it's there, it is beautiful.
