Listen for Five Minutes


Five Minute Friday


The prompt: Listen…

 

Go!

 

Listen to the wind. Listen to the waves as they crash
against the shore. Listen to the sound of a child’s heart beat when they fall
asleep on your chest after crying for an hour. Listen to the crazy silence
during a power outage. Silence that makes me miss the hum of modern day
society. Listen to nature, to the sounds of the forest, to the language of the
trees. Oh yes, they talk. It isn’t communication with words like humans have,
but they do talk. And they remember. They remember more than you ever will,
because they live longer than you do. Unless they get cut down. Or burned down.
Lighting happens!

 

Alright, most forest fires are from humans. Listen to Smoky
the Bear- Only YOU can prevent forest fires! Not sure what that means for the
forestry service or the rangers. Does it also apply to people who live in the
desert and are no where near a forest? I’m just wondering. What about babies?
Are infants, little ones who haven’t even mastered crawling yet, supposed to
prevent forest fires? Better question yet- are they starting them??? Damn pyro
babies.

 

If you had listened to your parents or guidance counselor
and used a condom, the pyro baby never would have started a fire! Unless your
parents or guidance counselor were against safe sex and instead suggested the
“Free Love” hippie way of life. Don’t hippies hate forest fires? I’m
so confused.

 

Thankfully the 5 minutes is up, because I have no idea where
this free write would have gone!

    I love this little post. It started out really serious and had me laughing at the end. Great job for five minutes worth of writing. 🙂
