* 5 min friday - listen *

Lying on my back in the grass. Staring up at the sky. I don't think about the effects this will have on my hayfever. I am relaxing in the green, eyes at the sky and I get that strange feeling in my tummy again. Just like I did when I was a kid. After awhile I slowly close my eyes and feel my heart beat. Listening to my own thoughts spinning through my mind like mad house. What needs to be done, groceries, cleaning, going to library, did I record my favorite series yesterday? What will I make for dinner this evening? When was that dentist appointment again? Slowly my mind drifts off and slowly goes silent...
The sounds I didn't heard before because I was too busy with my daily thoughts and things-to-do, are drifting around and floating in the air. Cars passing by, kids screaming with fun, neighbours talking, birds chirping, different birds different chirping, bees buzzing.
I can smell the summer air, feel the grass caressing my arms. My hearbeat slows down and I smile..


  1. So lovely, Miranda !
    Wonderful thoughts, dreams of yesteryear ... also did this when I was a child :-)
    Nice week,

  2. Lovely image and I loved your words - really did take me right back to lying on the ground looking up at the sun like I did when I was a kid.

  3. Beautiful. I'm purposing to slow down and listen once in a while again...

  4. Beautiful and your thoughts reminds me of what I think of at night in bed while I'm trying to sleep!

  5. That is so beautiful... The sound of time slowing down...
    Wonderfully written!
