Fridays are for writing and reflection prompted by Five Minute Fridays
So I write for Five minute, no edits, no re dos and at the end I will see if there are pictures from this week that match the words of this week.
One... We stand along the edge, toes curling around the metal rim of the pool.
Two... Our hands reach out for one another in anticipation.
Three... We dive in, water rushing over our heads
Together we emerge water drips from our bangs and laughter shines through our eyes.
Young friends with nothing to deep or scary to stop us. Life is still all wonders and excitement.
When did that change?
When did diving deep become a thing of murky waters. A place of judgement and pain. Those friendships of youth becoming harder to recreate. So instead we float on the surface and pray for the strength.
The strength to find someone who will hold our hand again as we dive deep.
