Daily Prompt – Sunday

Think back on your most memorable road trip.

Daily Prompt

driving home
on different roads
and streets

these trees are taller

I remember places
that only exist in photos
and memories now

and then
the beauty
of today

A Cross Necklace

Describe an item you were incredibly attached to as a youth. What became of it?

Daily Prompt

This prompt recalled a post from May 15, 2012: A Cross Necklace. I will reprint the post today.

The lilies-of-the-valley are beginning to bloom.  My mother loved them, as I’m sure is true of many people.  I was just reading poems by Luci Shaw, and I shared her books with Mom too.  I remembered a marble cross necklace my mother had.  She gave me permission to wear it to high school, over 40 years ago.  And I lost it somehow and never found it.  My mother was so kind.  She pictured God’s love for me in many ways, including the keeping of material possessions in perspective.

Tanka by Carol Purington

On a drift of air
that circles the globe
from heart to heart,
continent to continent –
words of a carol
