Go to the nearest window. Look out for a full minute. Write about what you saw.
Since I was unable write this prompt on the day it was posted, I’m going to tell you about what I saw out of my window on Monday afternoon.
We would normally be in the middle of winter in Alabama, but this season has been strange, to say the least; 70’s one day and 30’s the next, with lots of rain. So, now I guess we are in early spring?
Anyway, as I said in a previous post, I still wasn’t feeling well on Monday and had a doctor’s appointment that afternoon. I didn’t notice it when I got in the car to leave for the doctor’s appointment, but when I returned home it was there; smiling at me through the car window.
A bright, sunny yellow daffodil in full bloom. I got out of the car and walked over to my flower bed to get a closer look. There was a couple more bulbs ready to bloom and lots of green daffodil shoots reaching for the sun. If I had felt better I would have taken a picture, but it looked something like this:
There’s something about the daffodils that warm my heart and make me smile. I can just think about them and smile. It could be that, for me, they symbolize the coming spring. It could be their bright sunny faces.
No matter what it is, I’ll take it!
