Hello there! It has been ages since I took part in Lisa-Jo's "Five Minute Friday" party, but that's about all the time I had today. Five minutes. Besides, I've been wanting to play along again--for some reason I think some of my bests posts are written in five minutes.
Is that so wrong?
Anyway, thanks, Lisa-Jo, for hosting this fun party every week. And thanks for the prompt. It was fun!
How could I forget? The first time I laid eyes on you, your age mystified me. As I traversed your fields, alleyways, byways, I had a sense of being there before. Of belonging. Of home.
And I wondered if you had remembered. Had you remembered the reason you were still standing? Had you remembered the ancient wars? Had you remembered the vision and the dedication of your great poets?
Did you remember?
It was He who gave you the land of my heart. He who clothed you with greens and purples and blues. He who ran His finger over your hills and called them good. He who blessed you with rain and wind and clouds so that beauty would be your name.
Remember the days of sunshine and warmth. Remember the carefree hours of new friendships and old words. Remember the blessing of love’s first blush, red and fragrant.
Remember the old and the new.
Look up. And remember.
Linking up with Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama today.
