Today I am linking up to The Gypsy Mama. Every Friday she posts a prompt and for five minutes (only five minutes) she writes. Once the five minutes are up no editing or changes can be made. I decided to link up and write my own five minute piece.
In real life two friends sit face to face.
One cups her hands around hot coffee,
The other around ice-tea.
They’ve been friends since they were tiny.
There is an undeniable history between them.
Somehow no matter how much time elapses between get-togethers and chats they still connect when they come together again.
The conversation isn’t too awkward when they re-meet, there is laughter to be found, and there are encouraging words to be mutually spoken.
This is real life.
This is my real life.
To share words with friends face to face.
To smell the drink in their hands, see the muscles move on their face, and hear the sound waves straight from their mouth to my own ears.
Real life is breathing in, taking in, hearing, smelling, seeing, and being.
Friendship in real life- that is what I felt last night.
