Category Archives: Five Min. Fridays (Poetry in 5 minutes)
A creative exercise where you will find meaningful, straight from the heart poetry/prose that freely flows out in five minutes. Part of a community I am in from Lisa Jo Baker’s “Tales of a Gypsy Mama”. She started this thing called “Five Minute Friday” where a flash mob of us writers write for five minutes flat on whatever word prompt she gives us for that week. I have just decided to use my time to try to write poetry in 5 minutes. From deep, to beautifully poetic, to silly, I hope you will be inspired by poetry in five!
It’s time for another 5 min. Friday! Mine this week is written poetry style again. The words flowed out easily this week with the word “Look”(as opposed to last week’s fiasco with the word “race”). If you would like to freely write for 5 minutes , not worrying about the outcome, please join me by either leaving your 5 min. Friday in the comments section at the website, or by posting to the We Live Inspired facebook page HERE (if you are not a blogger). If you ARE a blogger, why not join in with LisaJo’s (The Gypsy Mama’s) FMF community and link up with us HERE today? Go Look Look at me- Here I am. My authentic self in all its glory. The good parts, The bad parts. … Continue Reading →
Who needs a good chuckle at my expense this week? Look no further! This week’s 5 min. Friday started with a major blonde moment on my part, and since there is this rule that you can’t over think this, you can’t backtrack, and you just have to write what comes to mind for 5 minutes flat, I left it just as it happened-blonde moment and all 🙂 Maybe I shouldn’t get so excited about 5 min. Fridays that I stay up past midnight to write these! Surely this is to blame… 😀 My friend Becky and I did this project together while we were Skype chatting tonight, and since she is not a blogger, she will be leaving her 5 min. Friday in the comments section below (at the … Continue Reading →
It’s time for another 5 min. Friday (my second one). What is this you ask? Well us writers are given 1 word (and we are not given the word ahead of time, I assume so that we can’t ponder it all week) and then we are supposed to set a timer for 5 min. and just write whatever we can think of with that word. No backtracking, no over analyzing, no worrying about mistakes. It’s interesting that is for sure! I had a hard time with today’s word “Welcome” and must confess I sat there blank for a bit at first. Here is my poem about Welcome: Go Welcome A picture of Grace with arms wide open not restricting , not folded down Hands reaching out to another- … Continue Reading →
Today’s blog post is something new I tried this week. It’s a 5 min. writing exercise prompted by Lisa-Jo, a community leader at the InCourage (part of Dayspring) network for women. I was a bit chicken to do it, but anyways…here goes. If you are a blogger and want to participate in 5 min. Fridays, there is a new word prompt each week , and you can click through the link at the bottom of this to check it out. Rules: 1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking. 2. Link back here and invite others to join in. 3.
