― Kurt Vonnegut, Mother Night

peering through the window pane
I see a stately and glorious tree
silky blooms flit and flutter
her identity lofty and free

I can see the early, rising sun
shining through delicate leaves
quiet gusts have bid farewell
let’s pretend all can see

her leaves rustle with the wind
she sways oh, so tenderly
welcoming in her own free way
we like to chat occasionally

peering through the window pane
I see a lovely and wondrous tree
long slender branches stretch
why she’s reaching out to me

Thoughts from the Heartland

And there’s more to come, friends! Here is what’s happening at the BrewNSpew Cafe!

On Mondays, I publish a post titled BrewNSpew Cafe. One of the highlights is I select a “word/expression of the week”. I create my composition with my interpretation.

You’re welcome to join our talented community and challenge yourselves by composing your own creation using the week by week featured word. Please and thank you for limiting your post to 300 words or fewer.

Link your blog to mine with a Pingback. To do a Pingback: Copy the URL (the HTTPS:// address of my post) for the current week’s Challenge and paste it into your post. You may also place a copy of the URL of your post in the comments of the current week’s Challenge post.

The prompt will close 5 days from the date of my post. I will post a week after week wrap-up of posts shared by our kindred bloggers.

How about we be creative and have fun!
