This is my second try at the Five Minute Friday theme, this week: Delight. The first five minutes turned into a mere list of sights, smells, tastes, sounds and feelings I delight in. Temporal things, based on my senses.
What is delight? The capacity to enjoy, to love, to be thrilled with a gift, a blessing. To recognize the awe, the beauty, the uniqueness of a gift, a moment of time, a feeling deep within.
To delight in a tiny thing that sparks an emotional response - a smile, a sigh, a pause, in the middle of a day's craziness. All through my day.
Delight is an emotion. A verb - to delight. A noun, the delight of the sight filled my soul. An adjective, the delightful smells drifted up the stairs. And I have reverted to lists again. A word that sounds a bit dated, like a Jane Austen character saying, "We had a delightful evening at the ball." My delightful five minutes are done.
I can't believe how fast five minutes goes by.
This scene is something I delighted in this week: pink snow across the valley!
