Today is one of my favorite days – my “baby” sister’s birthday! And I’m missing her.

I remember this day the pictures was taken, a quick Easter picture before heading to church, reaching out towards mom’s pink and purple roses near the driveway.It was a mild spring day in San Jose, early morning,

Strange how photographs hold sounds and scents, emotions ... And wonderous.

Today’s prompt is “baby sister”


It’s a week until April, National Poetry Month, and the start of many Poem-A-Day (PAD) challenges.The countdown has begun …
