five minute friday



she sat on the black chair with the cracked back

she had a cup of coffee in her hand, already cooling because again she got distracted picking something up instead of sitting down when the cream was added

the sun was organge slices on the front window

warm color streaking the quiet room stretched out from the east

facing the front she closes her eyes, takes a sip, takes another

opening her eyes that is when the glint, like gold flashing in a pan, caught her right eye

the small mirror, hanging on the wall on the west side was catching orange rays that sliced through the windows in far room to her left

refraction? is that what it is called? the bouncing of light?

it hit her full in the face, this quiet moment; sun rays from another room illuminating her face

it was perfectly still and lovely



Welcome to my 5 minute friday!

Yesterday, while doing some much neglected blog catching up and surfing I came across two lovely sites that participated in this.

Was intrigued.

Loved the philosophy behind it:

Writing without that hounding perfectionism chiding you over the shoulder, for five concentrated minutes.

I strive to be truthful here.  Am an honest person, but an over-thinking one.  Am striving to make more time for writing.  So 5 minute friday fits like an Isotoner glove.

I cannot tell a lie: I wrote for 6 minutes!

This story is a real account of this morning.

The word prompt comes from today's 5 minutes friday blog host over at:
