Modern Day Samaritan Woman

Ten 

I have recently joined a group of writers for Five Minute Friday, hosted by Kate Motaung. Every week we write for five minutes after receiving a one word prompt. No editing or over thinking involved….Just writing for the love of writing. For more information please visit Kate Motaung at Heading Home. 





 The word for this week is :


START:

We all start life with…

Ten tiny fingers chubby and small;

Ten fingers to suck on while considering the world wide eyed with awe;

Ten fingers to explore every, texture, table, corner and crevice;

Ten fingers to paint and poke and point with;

Ten fingers to be cut (ouch) and feel pain with;

Ten fingers to hold onto mommy’s hand with;

Ten fingers to learn to pray with;

Ten fingers to go and write at school with;

Ten fingers to wipe tears away with;

Ten fingers to stroke the dog with;

Ten fingers to text and face book with;

Ten fingers to worship their creator with;

Ten fingers to go and work with;

Ten fingers to drive and show off with;

Ten fingers to marry and love another with;

Ten fingers to hold onto the next ten tiny fingers chubby and small;

Ten older fingers to comfort and hold with;

Ten bent and aged fingers to advise and guide with;

Eventually, ten fingers to gently hold and say goodbye with.

END

*Hugs* till next time.
