to write for 5 minutes flat on the prompt: “Dance” with no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
Here I go:
My children had never seen the ocean before. They were almost as excited about that as they were Disneyland! When we said it was okay to go in Elyse took off for the ocean as fast as she could. Being from Texas they were not prepared for the chill of the California water. And hesitation took over for a few moments. But excitement soon gave way and small feet could no longer be held back. She began to dance gleefully in the cold ocean waters. And soon she joined the dance of the waves. They lapped, she leapt. They withdrew and she bounded playfully, waiting until they made their approach again. The music was the sound of rushing waters, birds overhead, laughter from her brothers and a shutter that clicked non stop. They continued for sometime. Neither ready for the dance to end.
P.S. I LOVE comments! Please don't be shy!
