THE BAKE SALE

They wandered in one by one leaving their offerings.
Some stayed for coffee, others scuttled shyly away.
We added music to the mix
and one danced in gifting us her joy.
When they left they had filled their hearts
by emptying their pockets.
And contentment danced down the road with them

showing them the way

I can picture this in my head. It does feel good to give, and to dance.

cazzie,
It was fun but today was even better. We went round the whole school handing out chocolate bunnies. The sound of the kids' shouts ,squeals and laughter was a real tonic.

Yes, I love that. My three school aged kids finished up for the Easter break and they were all excited that Easter bunny came in and filled their creations with eggs...lovely time of the year isn't it?

Barefoot mistress told me:-
55 Flash Fiction: Write a story in exactly 55 words, with at least one character ....
those are the only rules..but sometimes I use a photo to inspire me, or sometimes I find the photo after the writing.
We used to play every Friday but now it's sorta loose because we all are so busy! Hope you will join us.
