First Memory

Composed: 4/20/13
Description: Inspired by a prompt in Christina’s post 5 Ideas to Get You Writing. The prompt was “write about your earliest memory.” This is the result.

I remember it dearly
That sweet lullaby
I curled into her shoulder
Warm, pacified
Late in the evening
A scene draped blue
Black trees in the window
Swaying in view
Was the setting that evening
As she rocked me to slumber
Humming a song
I don’t even remember
I must have dozed off then
Safe in her arms
Implicit I love yous
Deterring all harms
