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.

Hello Everyone...

Life has been so crazy lately, nothing wrong, just so busy and tired I had to take a break...Seems like longer than just a few days, but I'm finally rested up enough to start writing again.... But first I have to share a couple of things....
I Love my friend Helena, her blog is very inspirational and I enjoy the fact that she and I had started our blogs together, when she doesn't see me writing she wonders if I'm doing OK, mostly because she loves me as much as I love her, but also because she knows how dedicated I am to blogging... so the first thing I saw today was this sweet little reminder that she is thinking of me, Love it so much had to share it ! Thank you Helena !!
The next thing that came up was from my Sister-in-law Leslie, who in her own words is no poet, which I strongly disagree with, I think she is a wonderful poet... here is the proof...

I'm late for a very important day
The birthday of my sister-in-law
I'll use my pen instead of my jaw
There is so much I want to say
She goes by Lynne or JL
Magic is what I see in her garden
Oh's and Ah's are said so often
I feel I am under a spell
Her soul is in the beauty she spreads
Stone walls are all around
She uses every inch of her ground
Masterly arranging flowers in their beds.

There is more to Lynne than her flowers
She has overcome a tragic past
Rejecting the hold that could cast
Moving ahead instead with power
I welcomed her my arms opened wide
When she became my brother's wife
Bringing unspeakable joy to his life
She is his wife he says with great pride.

Happy Birthday Lynne!
Thank you for adding so much color to our world, not
just with flowers, but with your big heart.


Yep like I said, she is a wonderful poet !!  Another one of her many talents !! Thank you Leslie, I will treasure this always !!

I also want to thank you all for the sweet birthday wishes... you all made my day  !! Thank you !!

So now I'm off to see what we are doing for the Multi-prompt Monday.. hope to see you joining in with us today !!



  1. I was wondering about you, tell your sister in law she is a great poet. I haven't been doing much blogging lately myself. Been busy babysitting my great grandbaby.

  2. Nice to see you are okay. Have a great day.

  3. It's official...we're family! Your such a Sweetheart...Hugs ♥ ஆεlεɳa
