(NaPoWriMo2017 – Day 2)
5 years friendship
12 miles bike path
4 gym shoes, slightly worn
2 caps baseball
3000 milliliters water
Locate 6-mile bike path, and confirm that at least one end has parking. Fill 2 water bottles for each person, set aside. Dress comfortably. Be sure to use baseball caps to protect eyes and face from the sun.
Walk together. Share funny stories. Ponder aloud. Reveal fears and worries. Discuss emotions. All of them. Listen. Provide pep-talks.
Notice the breeze. See the color of each leave, noting the differences since the last walk. Celebrate the slivers of sunshine that drip through the canopy of trees above. Pay attention to the beauty around you. Declare the metaphor among long walks and important friendships.
Continue walking to the end of the path. Drink more water. Turn around and make 6-mile return hike.
Prompt for 4/2/2017
Today, I’d like you to write a poem inspired by, or in the form of, a recipe! It can be a recipe for something real, like your grandmother’s lemon chiffon cake, or for something imaginary, like a love potion or a spell. NaPoWriMo.com
