Time for Five minute Friday, linking with Lisa Jo Baker.
- Write for five minutes.
- Post without editing.
- Word: rhythm
I watch her breathing. In and out.
Her little chest going up and down.
And I know who started this life.
Who fashioned each part.
It was the same one who fashioned her father.
The same one who years ago fashioned me.
Oh, the things that are in store for her.
The tastes she will experience.
The wonders she will open her eyes to.
And yet, she sleeps quietly now, unaware.
She knows only what is revealed each day.
Today a sound she never heard before.
Yesterday, sand between her chubby toes.
I watch her sleep. Her rising and falling little chest.
And I pray. Pray that God will protect her.
That he will guide her every step.
In and out. Up and down.
Such is the rhythm of life.
