Take a Word - Hot Colors

Colors of summer.

Digital Whisper - Windmill

Some sounds from our childhood stay with us forever.  So it is that the gentle creaking of the windmill in a prairie breeze is a memory long stored in the attic of my brain.  I associate it with being snug and secure in my bed beneath the eaves,  and the sweet smell of new mown hay wafting through my window.   I wish I could bottle those sounds and smells for instant replay!

Sunday Postcard - Lace

Lace curtains at the window
speak of happy days,
memories of time long past
and loving family ways.

vines grow above the door.
Still,  the curtains tell us
Of the times that came before.
