Today at d/Verse, Grace asked us to consider the significance of setting in our poems. We are to write a poem that definitely gives the reader a sense of the poem’s setting. This is one of my favorite photos of my two boys many years ago. I found a child’s shaving kit at the Dollar Store and he loved it.
Today at d’Verse, Mish asked us to used the word flush as our prompt. I decided to leave the tempting current toilet paper shortage behind, and write about a beautiful memory from forty years back. This is Quadrille Monday so our poems must be exactly forty-four words.
These three little boys Kevin, Doug, and Chris had such fun together back in the mid 70s. All born the same year, they were bosom buddies. Every time they got together they had a great time. This photo shows them enjoying their ride in the potato cart. Kevin’s father, Roy, built the tractor and mower combo. It pivoted in the middle and could turn on a dime.
These little rockers enjoyed the music coming out of the ancient Panasonic Stereo record player. Having grown up together they always loved getting together, as you can see. This is definitely poetry in motion!!
