"Keep" ~ Five Minute Friday 2/6/15

Set those timers for this week's Five Minute Friday writing prompt!
Here we go~~~

The cloudless cerulean sky stretching in all directions.

The whispery turquoise roadside wildflowers,
 seemingly not beaten down by constant raging, 
passing vehicles.

The azure and crystal-bright, 
yet mischievous eyes of my oldest.

And the midwest hue of green
unlike any we've seen before, really

Impossibly neat acres of corn,
hundreds of acres...thousands?
Blowing by  windy interstate
following the ribbon of road
the red,
the classic red
and silver capped
They stand like distant sentinels.

We won't recall the cross words
 tense moments.

Mo, those memories that glow....?
That we want to keep......
To hold close?

Those will shine
 with the  quiet and the togetherness 
that we feel right now.

I know they will.

  1. "Those will shine with the quiet and the togetherness that we feel right now." - That is my prayer every day for my daughter. I hope she remembers those moments above all others.

  3. Beautiful imagery--I felt like I was right with you on your journey. It's always the memories that I want to keep from vacations--not the souvenirs, the memories!

  4. Bursting with beautiful description! I can almost picture myself on that same stretch of road with my three boys in the backseat. Lovely!! Glad to be visiting from #CoffeeForYourHeart today!
