Five Minute Friday: Vivid

I decided to participate in Five Minute Friday over at The Gypsy Mama again this week. My brain has been quite foggy of late, and I wasn’t able to get any writing done until now. So, although it’s Monday, here’s my Five Minute Friday. Hey, we could all use a little more Friday on Monday, right? 😉

This week’s word: VIVID


Rolling green hills reflect a vivid golden sun.

Fluffy clouds of grey and white look down from overhead, observing the goings on of the world below.

Rock walls sprawl across the land in every direction.

Standing on a hill, the fresh wind blows in from the Atlantic and Your Love whispers deep in my soul.

Water and sky dance together merging into a singular vast expanse.

Surrounded by forty shades of green and lilting notes on a Irish breeze, Your Voice sinks into the deepest recesses of my soul. Lord of all Creation and yet Lover of my soul.

I gaze out beyond the Islands and its as though I’m looking straight into Your heart. I feel so alive, its as though my heart was born in Ireland.

  1. “It’s as though my heart was born in Ireland.” I thought I was the only one! I’ve lived in Ireland a couple of times briefly, have not yet managed the “happily ever after.” Where are you at? I lived in Wexford and in Louth, but I’ve been around several times. I miss it–it’s been too long. Tell me more! I’m always anxious to hear more from Ireland.

  2. Yes, several times. I considered schooling a UCG, but it never worked out. I think I’ve been in Ireland 4 or 5 times, but now I haven’t been there for about 10 years. Still have friends that I keep in touch with in Belfast, New Ross, Carlingford, Dundalk, Cork. I thought I’d end up in Ireland for sure! I guess we still could, but the opportunity has not appeared on the horizon yet. Do you mind if I ask what you are doing there? I’m always on the look-out for an opportunity to make a move! 🙂

  3. Oh my, I would love to visit Ireland! My family is full of red-headed, hot-tempered Irishmen and I’ve heard so much about that beautiful land! How blessed you are! Thank you for taking the time to link-up!!
