Easter Egg Hunt

for: Petra and Angus

Which one, or both in tears.

Their Nonnie was moving

From her beloved house.

The only house they had

known for her

With its pool and palm trees.

Its fire-pit and fairy garden.

But it was time to move.

And how quickly the time.

Already Easter; huge grounds

in a grace and favour cottage

in the hills among magnificent trees.

Oh, what a place for an Easter Egg Hunt.

Today’s prompt a complicated exercise of creating a Personal Universe Deck, then selecting four words from which to write a poem. I’ll create my Deck later. And for now, because I’ve been communicating with my Granddaughter via FaceBook, a poem for the Great-grandchildren.

This feels a little like cheating being a day ahead. Easter Eggs are for Easter Sunday morning. Well it is for me. I usually write my NaPoWriMo’s very shortly after the prompt comes out for the day. My place on the Meridians sets me a little forward of NaPoWriMo time. Anyway it’s Day 3 and I hope you will enjoy as I enjoy my Aussie loved ones who God knows when we’ll see them. It was to have been about this time last year but Covid put a stop to that.
