Prompt: Think of the first flower that left an impression on you; why do you remember it? What makes its identity so memorable? Write a few sentences about the flower, and be sure to stir up the senses. Suggested length: 5 sentences. Feel free to share your writing exercise; I'll comment mine as well. Let's keep writing together.
@onesmile thank you for joining! What an interesring way to write about loss, and how even if we don't remember it, it can still leave an imprint.
Interesting! I'm gonna write about an interesting flower, instead, because I can't remember my first. "After you tucked a flower behind my hair, laughed and called it cute, I didn't want to take it out. Even when you left the park that day, with someone else, i kept the flower in my hair. I took it out of my hair, gently, and placed it on my nightstand. Even after it died and its leaves withered and I forgot where it came from, it remained on my nightstand-a reminder of what never was.
@greggr thank you, but I like yours better sir haha :)
@timeturnerjones No worries; I'm glad you have joined in now. Beautiful! I can just imagine how it used to smile down at you. Let me try now. "For me, the first flowers were those some refuse to call flowers: the dandelions that popped their heads up into the grass each year. They popped their heads up into the yard, and then we took our grubby hands and popped the heads of the dandelions."
Sorry I didn't get to this sooner!! The first flower I remember was more of a tower than a flower. Even after climbing the four, five, six steps in my backyard, the tall sunflower towered over me at six years old. I used to crawl across the wall in the yard, reach for it's petals and still, it towered over me, smiling down. The sunflower didn't survive forever, though; as I grow taller and stronger, it grew shorter and weaker. Almost like I took its sunshine as my own.
