(So, I’ve been participating in a “writers’ flash mob” of sorts called Five Minute Friday. In response to a one-word prompt, hundreds of writers sit down and write for five minutes flat. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font or punctuation; unscripted and unedited. Here’s today’s edition…setting the timer….)
Five Minute Friday: Sing
How can I sing when my heart’s out of tune?
When there’s no harmony in my world?
My soul seeks to sing – to hum along and whistle.
My soul, not always knowing or remembering the words, bursts with song.
I sing because my soul chooses to sing.
It can’t not sing.
Sometimes out of tune or with the wrong words.
But I sing.
And it makes a difference.
At least to me.
