Poem Idea - Brothers, Sisters, and Memory

Your siblings invite memories of days in your past. They encourage younger experiences to be relived and re-imagined. Some of these times of remembrance are positive, some are not so warm and fuzzy. Think of one of those days where the memories are clear.

Focus on the emotions of the day as well as the events. Which one helped you retain that memory? Was it the emotion? Was it the event? Or, was it a combination of both? Did the location of the interaction influence the emotions, the event, the memory?

After your first draft, call your brother or sister and talk about the memory…Go back and relive your verse… Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
