Every week, bloggers from around the web come together and write for five minutes on one word. Join us!
Today’s Five Minute Friday prompt is Real.
The things that are the most real are the ones hardest to quantify. You can’t hold them in your hand, unless you count holding hands.
When I was young, if you had asked me what was real I would have said houses or land, money in the bank, but I would have been wrong.
The real things are quick silver wispy bits, of no physical substance even while they are the weightiest.
You cannot actually see sorrow or hold passion, but there are few things greater and more substantial.
There is an unbendable strength to what is real.
Real things are absolute and do not change. Nothing can erase them once they exist.
Real things are evident when the heart looks.
Isn’t it odd how the firm and solid things, the truest and most concrete things of all are not definable things at all?
Yet they couldn’t be any more real.
