Too many to name right now.


A trail of blackberries up to the cliff
Nature helping me find her
The clouds move as if alive by her song
They dance and play like she and I used to,
Her voice in my head as I start to run
Chasing our memories and love
Normally clumsy, I make my way
No trip or fall to separate me from my mentor
The women I've loved all my life
I chase the wind as it carries my mother from me.

My teacher gave us an assignment and gave us seven words we had to use in a ten line piece an thus; my poem. Lol. I took it home after it was graded and let my mom read it and she cried.

Really beautiful, especially knowing that you had to use certain words. What were they, if you don't mind revealing it?
