Periodic poetry sharing as the mood strikes me. Free verse is my friend. xoA
So much packed into this poem. It brings me back to simpler times and is filled with emotion. Well done, Annis! Very happy you're writing along with us at OctPoWriMo again.
Thank you, Morgan. It "just came" out of the free write. xoA
Thank you, Zannie. xoA
Really enjoyed this one, Annis, for I have the very same Bulova watch given to me by my grandmother! Especially love that last line: How could we be keepers of time at the age of 9? But, we are.
Beth I love that your grandmother had the same watch and you then received it, too. Yep. We were allowed to be kids, but we had to take responsibility, too. Thanks for your comments. xoA
