Daily Prompt ,  One Word Prompt 


The word for this prompt is Flames
Oranges, reds and gold

Flames of colors so bold

Indiana is the place to be 

If flames are what you want to see.

Don’t blink twice or you will miss

The tender scene of a beautiful kiss.

Before you realize ,  the trees are bare

The cold of winter, the crispy air.

Beautiful wedding white bridal gowns

Rest so gently in our ground.

A virgin snow captures innocence 

Inviting walKS along rows of fence.

A Poem I Wrote 

​I  remember  when you  were new

Eyes of blue  

Too small  to  know  

The Christmas  glow.
I remember  you  

When you  were two

So excited  from toys

Squeals of  joy.
I  remember  when

You  were 16 then

Santa brought  a car

You  drove  so far.
That was the last time

We sat in line

Watching  your   face

Now there  is  no place
Christmas  is here

Why aren’t  you dear?

I  miss your  face  

I wish I  could  have  taken  your  place.
Christmas  will never be

The same for dad and me

We sit here with tears

Missing  you  being near.
