Sunday 160 - Remember


We feel them in our hearts. 
Mothers. 
Fathers. 
Sisters. 
Brothers. 
Friends. 
Today we speak their names 
and we remember. 

Peggy. 
Keith. 
Howard. 
Don. 
Jessie. 
Cheryl.
 ______________

If you wish to take the Sunday 160 challenge, here are the rules:

1. The Sunday 160 only uses EXACTLY 160 characters (including spaces).
2. Keep on schedule - post after 8:00 PM Pacific Time on Saturday.
3. Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site.
(Be sure to mention you have posted a 160. Provide a link if you can)
4. Visit at least one other Sunday 160 writer.

So simple, yet so powerful. Excellent write, MM.

No 160 for me this week, I needed too many words today. But I'm sure I'll be back next Sunday.

Felicitas said...

This is a lovely tribute, MM.

kkrige said...

A touching tribute MM. I guess that is the reasoning behind Memorial Day?To remember. There are so many that cannot be forgotten.

I haven't played in a while, so thought I would join this evening.

A touching memorial.

Sandra said...

Always beautiful Mr.Monkey...wish I could be more varied with my comments, but your words are always beautiful.
PS: Could you please tell the lovely Pheromone Girl that I've been to her blog, and for some reason, Blogger isn't letting me leave a comment. It keeps trying to get me to relog in when I know perfectly well I'm logged in! This is why I'm moving to Wordpress next week. And her email is not on her profile so I can't privately email her. However, tell her, I thank her for her lovely comments, and I think her writing is so real and lovely, and I really do enjoy her. Go tell her. Go now! Thanks :)

Very moving. I agree with Brian, the names make it closer to home.
