small roads home

Daily writing prompt
How do you unwind after a demanding day?

This prompt brings back memories of helping with my mother’s care. These were good years, and also were a lot of work. And she worked hard all her life. Good memories. Many people helped with her care. Her last illness was at the nursing home where she served as a volunteer for years.

I learned the small roads back North and home to our small town. Perhaps I can write a new poem.

small roads home
and the contrast between
city and small towns
flowers bloom later here
how wonderful to see them
at my mother’s home
and our home

Verses From The Psalms

Keep me as the apple of the eye,
hide me under the shadow of thy wings

Psalm 17: 8

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

Psalm 18: 1

Let the words of my mouth,
and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight,
O LORD, my strength,
and my redeemer.

Psalm 19: 14

Daily writing prompt
What’s something most people don’t understand?

One of the blessings of art and literature is to help us understand what we may not be able to understand, so far in our lives.

Luci Shaw is a writer who is older than me, and I often turn to her books and reread as I age as well. For more information, please see Luci Shaw The Official Website.
