dismissed

The Sergeant-Major’s voice boomed out across the parade ground…”Dismissed!”.

As one the platoon of men turned and fell out and started to walk back to barracks. It would shortly be time for the mess and no-one wanted to miss that given that this afternoon was to be a 10 mile route march.

sweat

The sweat poured off his brow. It dripped into his eyes, blurring his vision. With a shaking hand he wiped his eyes to restore his sight and then to remove some of the sweat. Even as he wiped it away, more seem to appear like a waterfall.

adopt

To adopt is to make something our own. Whether you adopt a child or a principle or vice, we make it our own. It’s a useful thing to do. When you have a problem, adopt it.

beehive

It stood in the small garden with a brother. Tall, white and full of life, the beehive literally buzzed with excitement and life. The bees inside were collecting the pollen from the first day of spring.
