Writer's Workshop

I love the carnival known as Writer's Workshop that is hosted by Mama Katt. No matter how busy my life is, I just have to participate. Thanks, Mama Katt....this gives my life meaning.

Anyway, the prompts are as follows:

1.) Book review!

2.) When is it okay not to listen to the words? Explain about a song you really love that has lame lyrcis or lyrics you simply don't understand.


3.) Why won't you forget? List six true sentences that begin with the words 'I'll never forget...' Then use all six of your sentences in a paragraph, poem, or longer descriptive piece.

4.) Write about an interaction you had with a salesman.

5.) What's for dinner? I'm starving.

I'm going with number three, I'm too lazy to rewrite my sentences for you, but I'll put the I will never forget sentences in bold.

I Will Never Forget

Many incidents and accidents of my life melting away,
the memories fade or just simply won't stay.
But, in my mind six great moments brightly shine ;
some tragic, some magic, but in their way are all mine.

I will never forget a moment in the sun, The fresh mowed grass...and the Rangers even won.
The sound of the bat, the scream of the crowd,
when darkness set in, the din was very loud.

I will never forget the first time behind the wheel, the smell of that ol' pickup was just part of the deal.
Three quarters of a ton and orange even to boot,
I loved that truck despite the times I was afoot.

I will never forget an instance that last New Year's Eve as 1999 died, it's still so hard to believe.
Two close friends would hit milestones that the summer would pave.
One would be married, the other would be in the grave.

I will never forget a cold crisp night. In the middle of the hill country, oh what a sight.
With sparkling lights as far as you could see,
A first kiss began a whole new life for me.

I'll never forget a small country church, my heart jumping, my nerves in a lurch.
A beautiful bride all dressed in white,
who would be mine the rest of my life.

I will never forget two voices so loud, crying and struggling as they finally got out.
The first time I saw them as they left their lair,
they both grabbed my finger and my heart was theirs.

These moments of time I etched in my soul,
where the ravages of time has no control.
I might even someday forget my own name,
but these memories gave me too much joy, too much pain.

That is why I know and that's why I bet,
That these six memories I shall never forget.
