Five Minute Friday:Vivid


Five minute Friday is here...five minutes where I'll write without editing, backtracking, or second guessing.  Five minutes to write because I love it, because it frees me, if only for five minutes...
Today's topic?  Vivid

Ready...Set...Go!
Vivid

In my mind I see all the colors of her...

purple for that hair color that went awry

Irish green for those sparkling eyes

creamy smooth of a face not oft touched by sun

tan spots spattering her cheeks

the blue of her living area which became a bedroom that matched mine

gray Iowa skies on a minus three December's eve

yellow happy returns lilies we placed in her garden

red for the cowl neck she wore

black, a cozy blanket her dad brought the last time he visited

distressed wood on the bedside table

crystal sparkles in the lime slush

a rainbow cascade in her laughter

pure sunshine out of her smile


She was vivid. Vibrant. Beautiful.

It's how I'll always see her in my heart..

Stop.
