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.

Today Is Mothers Day 2011

We are celebrating with all mothers far and wide, whether or not you have children of the human race, or are like me and a mother of a furry child,  we all have the heart full of emotions, pride and enjoyment for our kids !  Being a garden fanatic all of the plants in my garden too are my sweet babies... I love them so much that I have gained the nickname Mother Nature, an honor for me.

Today we are doing one of our favorite prompts... USE THIS LINE ... HERE WE LEAVE THE RUSHING ... You may use this line anywhere in your write, but it must be used as it is given,  prose or any form of poetry is welcome for this prompt (you too Richie !!!)  OURS IS ...


Hush now, rest your mind for awhile
here we leave the rushing
to the city life's

Close to me, my baby, grow strong
here we leave the rushing
to the rivers
and streams

Take time, my child, for life is short
so just leave the rushing
of growing old
to me

please child, slow, your growing fast,
now you are the rushing
wind at you feet

Grown, becoming a parent too
come back to where we still
leave the rushing

Now you understand, your child grows,
and you leave the rushing
to the city life's

Hoping for a slowing of life
where we leave the rushing
to the rivers
and streams
