G is for Gift

For the second year I decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  Each April bloggers write for 26 days (Sundays off). Each day is a consecutive letter of the alphabet.

Today is April 8th   and the  Gorgeous letter G

This Haiku is from the section “My Father” in The Bench.

    Have you written about a family member, you ask? Mwahahahahaha! Come and see! I’m all about family history (my A-Z theme) and by the time I’m through, you’ll know WAY more than you ever wanted to about me and my family! Gail, visiting on the A-Z hop. BTW< love your poetry.

  3. I’ve written about family members, but more from the perspective they become characters in my work.

  4. Nothing beats writing about someone you love; and your father’s smile is magnificent! 🙂

    I haven’t written about my family directly, but I know they’re in my stories, especially my father. The qualities I’ve learned from him, and from other important people in my life, turn up in my characters all the time. 🙂

    That’s really sweet and made me smile. 🙂 Great G post.

  7. Beautiful, Susan. Fathers…such inspiration. The photo of your dad– he has the nicest smile! After my dad passed away (I was 27 years old) I developed terrible writer’s block. A year later, I sat down one day and penned a poem. It just poured out. It took a couple of years for me to realize it was actually about my father’s death. So, yes, I wrote about a family member without planning it. 🙂 Is this the first you’ve written about a family member?
