Day 12 #OctPoWriMo – Playing

Morgan asks us today to be playful. To remember playing as a child. I tried to write a tongue twister, but none of them worked out.

Then I remembered that I have lots of photos of grandchildren playing. This is one of my favorites that Jim took on that day almost 12 years ago, when two of our children and their families came to the old homestead to tell mom goodbye. The littles didn’t know any better and were able to play outside. At the time, we only had 3 grandchildren. Now we have eight.

Leaves are to play in
Building forts and planting flowers
Grandchildren's final goodbye

Poetry Type: Whatever my muse helps me decide

Dear Muse, 
I need to know your name? 
What? you won't tell me?
Ah, because I've been avoiding you.
No one ever taught me about you.
I sure could use your help. 
I need direction
Where are you my angel? 
I need you to help me artfully place my words.
Oh angel of enlightenment, are you there? 
How do I find you?
Inspiration is gone.
Dear Writer,
You will know when I am near.

inspiration comes
words bubbling , springing, flowing
creativity
