#1576 TPOS: sad memories: our flag weeps

The events in Vegas on October I, 2017
did not remain in Vegas ~ word spread fast.
Young and old, rich and poor, strangers, friends or family.
no discrimination of color, religion or national origin.
Heroes and angels, visitors and locals
appeared out of the crowd and town.
cherita form
may they find peace of mind or rest in peace
despicable evil
heart wrenching pain
unspeakable flashbacks
our flag weeps
TPOS prompt: sad memories

the people who go to warmer climes for the winter
and we call them “snowbirds” in Maine.

#1572 TPOS: on the bed

on the bed
placed to perfection
white chenille bedspread
learned to read and write here
best penmanship practiced here
I did have a desk and chair next to the bed
but preferred to lay on my stomach to write
and my best penmanship seemed to be in
that position.
Reading would be with the pillows behind me…
yes, messing the lines of the bedspread, or
on my stomach. Then bedspread re-turned to
its neat and orderly look !

I chose it because the pillows are covered like
my mother would insist and the intricate print
all lines in order.

a mystery to find her
her ‘stash gives her away
