Life’s retrospection
collected like smooth pebbles
from a riverbed
I lay on the grassy shore
listening to soft lapping

as my memories
take me on a sweet journey
reaping the moments
that shaped me into who I
am today, forever


altered, rearranged
a once pliant and sweet girl
now a strong woman
gleaning thoughts all her own
collecting her river stones.

Each week, Colleen gives us two prompt words but the twist is we can only use synonyms.
Come join the fun!
