These words came from Before we were Free, a young adult book written by Julia Alvarez. The main character grows up under a corrupt regime in the Dominican Republic, while her family fights for justice. This is a beautiful coming of age story that explores political injustice, and has strong female characters.
Enjoy your writing time,
Took forever t get this one in – just made it in time this week, but I* had fun. What great words!
I haven’t been able to write a Sunday Whirl poem in a long time so I’m pretty excited about this one!
Cradle became the focus in this one and with what is happening in the world the ideas floated around the civilization.Thank you
Good set of words, Brenda.
This set of words took me to new places and I explored an unfamiliar (to me) herbivore. Many thanks as always!
I had not read where the words came from before writing. And yet both the word list an the bit about strong female characters fits! Though my Queen Regina isn’t so nice…
Tried to continue my bit from last week. Another great set of words, Brenda!
Good morning poets! It may have been the claws but I’m all about the birds today! Also they are migrating right past my window!
Going out of town today. Will drop by to read more this evening and early part of this week. Have fun, all.
Thanks, Sabra. See you soon.
Mmm..this one did but four of the first three contributor blogs returned an error. Poo.
None of the WordPress sites would let me post a comment. I did try…
Darn. It comes and goes like that, doesn’t it? The web is a fickle beast.
Good morning wordlers. I will be round to read through the day. Brenda, please remove link #6, it is the wrong poem. I hit enter, instead of erasing it. Thanks for all you do.
Got it, Pamela. Thank you for letting me know.
