to write is to live is to pray

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Writer

What is a writer anyway?
Creator, word mixer-master,
Putting together concepts most only see
in their most imaginative of moments

To write is to live is to pray is to make a mark
on this earth saying, “Yes, I was here.”

To write is to live is to pray is to take in the divine breath
and then slowly, word by exacting word, breathe out again

To write is to live is to pray is to give what’s been given back
to the One who gave it first

To write is to give expression to the holy within

To write is to give voice to the desire for G-d within

To write is to choose to let yourself be seen and known
Just a little bit more
One word at a time

Write, create, fashion, form, breathe
Take it in,
Give it all back again
