Great poem. "The dead woman thought, "I am not writing these poems the right way, and then the next line, made me laugh out loud. Exactly how I felt. My daughter is 15, your piece moved the mom in me deeply. thanks!

This is a great piece! The thought of her looking out of the mirror at her daughter, and the daughter perhaps sensing something is magical, and shows so much imagination...Loved it!


I too fell in love with this form, and I love what you did with this. I became that dead woman - you got me right into her head.


well done indeed......I liked this form also....thanks for sharing this Julie


Ah, the beauty of promtps, they let them make them into our own uses. Rules, schmules. This is wonderful and human. Full of longing.

I'm sorry for your loss. But glad you have words.

Incredibly moving. The daughter's last look was heartbreaking.
