Bloganuary Prompt Today

Describe your perfect birthday cake.
Bloganuary Prompt for January 28, 2023

This prompt brings back memories of working in a bakery when I was in high school. Sometimes the manager shared a beautiful cake with all of us. My father shopped at the store too. He bought rolls, and my mother baked cookies and cakes.

I am seeing some winter poems. Yesterday, snow at rest on branches, and a few are broken. Old trees and strong winds. Robins will return.

Light and Seasons

What is a song or poem that speaks to you and why?
Bloganuary Prompt for January 25, 2023

summer evening
quiet music and
a few Psalms
new evergreen growth
still in the sun

The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.

Psalm 74: 16-17 (KJV)

Veterans Day

Last year I wrote (and shared poems):

My father was a veteran and history teacher. This year, I am growing a new interest in history. There are so many ways to learn. Prayers for peace . . .

I have continued to learn more about history. There are so many stories to honor and respect. My parents had “big picture faith.”
