Seeking Change


Linking up with Lisa-Jo today for Five Minute Friday.  Here are her 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. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
Five Minute Friday

OK, are you ready? Please give me your best five minutes on: Change       

You would think that a pirate’s booty had been discovered with a faded map.  X marks the spot.  You would think that all the gold doubloons in the world were meaningless compared to this treasure.

The seeker goes around searching high and low.  He knows where his treasure will be found.  Quiet and stealthy he looks around. No one is looking.  He sticks a small hand inside and unzips to find what he is looking for.  Found it.

Daddy comes in and sits beside him on the couch – the small hand resumes its quest.  No place is sacred; nothing is off limits.  Papaw is especially fertile ground for this little privateer.  The unwitting are compliant and generous.  Who can resist that precious little face as he looks up day after day and makes his request for – CHANGE!


The bank is filling. The little screen on top shows the tally.  There has been much fruit for this labor.

STOP

    1. I'm bad about picture taking, so I'm gald I've got this one "in the bank", so to speak. It was totally staged, but it still works.

  12. Wonderful new take on the word "change". I thought about that meaning too. But what a lovely game of treasure hunt. And such an adorable pirate.
