Simply Six Minutes

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
Mother Nature offers up a compromise of sorts:
Here I give you every ordinary palm tree that exists on my earth, and every seed that might make a new one. I will even include the coconut palms as further declaration of my efforts. This will be a sacrifice I am willing to make to ensure we will come together in an agreement. I offer this concession not in jest but certainly in sorrow—the palm is a symbol of goodness. Please acknowledge this treaty with your commitment to stop the ruin and waste I see on my earth. The earth is here as an incredible gift to sustain all life, even sadly, the palm trees. But if it takes a forfeiture from me, so be it. I offer them to you, people of this world, for peace and hope for a brighter future.
