#50preciouswords Writing Contest
After a harrowing family drama filled weekend that included a Celebration of Life event for my Grandma. She lived long and prospered until 93- I sat down and decided to give the 50 word challenge a shot.
Here is my submission. I of course had to write about Food and my daughter, who LOVES food. Since there is such joy in watching her zest for life and in the anticipation of food, this just seemed to fit nicely. Writing it filled me with energy and hope, love and remembrances. And... It's only 48 words!
I hope you enjoy it.
Sunday morning Dim Sum
She wakes without the light of morning.
Joyfully greeting the day of promised possibilities…
Hand in hand, leaving the car to rest,
She springs up the street,
Hopping on one foot in anticipation, too big now for mother’s arms,
Until their table is set.
