For the Living

Absolute delight of a strawberry, home-grown!
An oceanic orchestra, or barking seal band,
A front row seat on the old wooden coaster,
Reserved for
The living,
The living!
The living
few
who
live.

http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/: This weekend we are asking you to play around with the following quote:
Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.
–Henry James
We want you to follow the same general structure of the above quote. Feel free to change the subject–tell us what’s important about coffee or houseplants or whatever you’d like. Or else change up the modifier–instead of telling us what’s important, tell us what’s sexy or overrated or pernicious. Your last three lines should closely echo James’s, giving us the same answer three times.

  1. My family and I picked six baskets of strawberries just yesterday. My daughter and I were at the beach today. There are butterflies starting to flitter about our backyard garden. The world is alive with wonder…….you just have to take the time to notice it and apreciate it, too. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂
