Words here, words there

Match words in the air

Give and take

Always create

Tail the team to the stream

If one falls in, throw them a rope

Let them see that they can cope

The vein that runs through the rock

Will never melt for it is locked

Fill a tank with rainwater

For the days that are hotter

This is also written for Six Sentence Story using the word “CONTEST”.

Back in the 1960s life was not as complex as it is right now, people were not in a rush all the time, speech no matter who was talking, man, woman, or child was a lot easier to understand compared to the unknown language that teens use today.

Back then we played tag, now we tag photo’s, stories, articles, use it quite a bit on social media and so forth.

I’ve many good memories of the ’60s as I lived with my grandparents.

As I look back today my grandmother must have had a heiligenschein around her head as she was the kindest, gentlest, most loving person I’ve ever met. She was a svelte woman with beautiful curls and I’m sure one that could win a beauty contest, hands down.

She was always trying to get me to temporize the death of my mother and she would insert stories of her every chance she got bouncing them off me in many of the conversations we had.
