My Response to the Prompts
.
.
chance conversation
Winslow ~ John or Edward
joined at the roots
one tree stayed put
the other went Westward Ho
.
Note:
On Thanksgiving many years ago
I joked about not our grandfather’s
Thanksgiving in Plimoth to a nursing
home resident who was proud of her
roots going back to the Mayflower.
A co-worker said, which one when she
heard me say Winslow… and it seems
our many times great grandfathers were
brothers…Edward and John.

My response to the prompt

Christmas Eve
families return each year
generations grow
children now with their own
heart warming ~ loving

note:
Where 40 years ago, there would have just been
a husband and wife, and maybe toddlers
tonight there were for at least two families,
two full pews including great-grands

CSP prompt: Sing

My response to the prompt:

mocking bird
sings each summer morning
new song each day
greets day in someone’s tune
loud and clear
…..
note:
as I have a hearing loss it is difficult
for me to identify many of the sounds of
nature. One day I mentioned that there
was “an annoying” bird that woke me each
morning… and I was told that a mockingbird
settled in the lilac bushes beside my bedroom
windows each day. Since then, I have learned
to enjoy being greeted with song each summer
morning
