100 Word Challenge for Grown
Ups – Week#46
June 18 2012
Very straight forward prompt this week:
… in the dark recess of my mind ..
As usual you have 100 words to add to these 7 making 107 altogether. Make sure you keep the prompt as it is, please put a link back to here http://jfb57.wordpress.com/ so that others can read all the posts and make sure it would be suitable for a PG certificate.
The link will stay open until 25th June.
Here is my entry for this week:
In the dark recess of my mind I wander alone
I search my memory for these people before me
They say they know me, they say I’m their mother
I don't know these strangers today, tomorrow I’ll be better
I remember days on the beach with my family
Posing for my photograph as a young lady
My younger brother sadly killed in action
Those two world wars I can recall with horror
But not what I am supposed to do tomorrow
They say they all love me truly
I gracefully nod and agree
Who is that baby they placed on my lap?
I want my nap.
Word count: 107
Dedicated to my lovely Nan, Harriet [(Hetty) nee Kelly], Davis 1899 - 1992.
