Light a candle for the memory of the Holocaust.

At eight o’clock this evening we will light a candle to remember the Holocaust. Every year, those who lost their lives in the Holocaust are remembered and honoured on Holocaust Memorial Day.

The day is used to remember the six million Jews who were killed under Nazi persecutions as well as those who died in subsequent genocides of which sadly there are too many.

Please join us if you can we must never forget, we must never deny. It did happen it is still happening.

Wordless Wednesday. Apple Pie.

Ronovan Writes Decima Challenge Image
Ronovan says : You may, if you wish, make some kind of link between the Haiku Challenge prompt of (ROUGH and Season) mine was a Tanka and it’s here.and this Décima Challenge of CARE in the D rhyme lineThis means you could write a haiku post using the prompt words. Then do a Décima post using this week’s prompt uniting the two with a common message.
The 2 challenges are separate but can be  combined if you choose to do so.

As always I chose to combine.

Rough Season Décima.

Bitter chill as night and hush falls.
The hedgerows full of sleeping beasts.
That this season often defeats.
Tomorrow and the hunt still calls.
The loss of hungry beasts appalls.
Nature only keeps the strongest
Winter’s cold winds last the longest.
Rough her rules may the weak take care.
She forges onwards harsh but fair.
Until Spring blossoms newly pressed.

I have met Sue and joined her and her companions from the The Silent Eye on a couple or their weekend workshops. My life has been enriched by knowing her. I have learned a lot from her and basked in the warmth of her friendship.

Like many others I have been inspired by her posts about her musings, beliefs and always been uplifted by her regular #midnighthaiku. Like many others I have joined in with Sue’s #writephoto prompts. Weekly Sue has tirelessly supported other bloggers by sharing their responses to to #writephoto. As well as explaining about the photo prompt and entering her own contrabution. Also her thoughts on her life, her family and reminiscences of her childhood and youth are always a delight to read. Not forgetting the the wise words and thoughts from her loving dog Ani at The Small Dogs Blog which are also a delight.
