The Up Close Beyond

Because Lisa Jo says, and I am going to obey:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!

The topic is…Beyond.

Beyond the need for tea, this is a Friday made for coffee.

Beyond the sound of the first alarm this morning, this was a day for staying present under the covers and listening for longer.

Beyond the shade of my umbrella, there is sunlight and uncertainty.

Beyond the calendar square of today lies the puzzle of more squares and a few rhombus-like pieces sneaking in and making confusion the language of tomorrow.

Beyond the hours spent at work is a time my mind cannot reach.

Today is a day for close. And still. Silent. For clouds and blankets. List making and floor cleaning. Beyond, beyond these close hours …is blank.
