I would like to extend everyone an invitation to participate in a poetry challenge. I've seen a few here and they look like fun. I hope everyone will join in. I'm interested to see what we can come up with. Use the words, love, gifts, rainy, waxed and children. My poem follows. I look forward to reading yours. Gifts of love Soft rainy days Bring to mind Screen doors slamming On rain sodden porches Wet tracks on waxed floors Dribbles of water On legs of children Catching rain water in pans To wash their mothers hair

Well done I will give it a try. Wishes of love on Cold rainy days. Children that play with the gifts, that we gave. Shoes sliding across a wet waxed floor. Those are the days that I want more.

I love my children with all my heart Through days both rainy and sunny The gifts that they bring are all a part Of the fabric of life so funny Sliding on waxed floors with tiny feet Their little voices lifted in glee Days gone by we can't repeat How quickly those moments flee
