This is a prompting Blog

My intent here is to write a poem from the prompt I give to you , the reader, in hopes that it will inspire something and get others to write with me.

Monday Memories, @ Asks What shopping experiences did you have when you were young, or in recent years?

And Here we go... OURS ARE...

There were photographs on the wall
of the children and the fun
she smiled at them often
as her ironing was getting done
and she marveled as the years
passed so quickly, after all
were displayed so sweetly
in the photographs on the wall

Shopping sucks
when you are a kid...
no, don't touch !
put that back !
Mommy can I please have this...
Yes, but only one ...

Finally we are happy to hand out the last five awards to our new blogging friends...
