It’s the fourth week of the month! Are you ready for a theme prompt? Kat from last month’s challenge picked the theme:

“Pick a Flower” and using one of the syllabic forms we use, tell us why it is special to you.

My mother was a gentle woman, loving and kind, her favourite flowers were Anemone, I have written a Nonet about her and her flowers because I miss her.

Always small yet colourful
Never over assuming
Elf like colour pools
Mother loved these flowers
Open bright and blooming
Nothing pleased her as these
Enchanting little Anemones.

    Your mom’s loves rubbed off on you, Willow. What a lovely picture of her. She looked like a movie star! How wonderful to raise a daughter that shares her memories for others to learn from and enjoy. The flowers have such a wide array of colors. 🙂
