Our Daughter

Mousehold Heath: July 2019

See there on the heath, she’s sitting
Bell-flower jingling, chuckling, giggling
See there on the heath, she is spreading
Purpling, rusting, adding colour
That’s Heather, our daughter

27 words written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: Heather

  3. Beautiful word choices, Crispina…”bell-flower jingling” and “rusting” especially stand out 🙂

    • I was looking for -ling words, cos that’s another word for heather. But so is bellflower, and therefore jingling. It was quickly written, but the words carefully chosen.
      Hey, Sammi, I’m a bone fide writer now! I feel I’ve come such a long way these past few years, and you’ve been there to help. I thank you

  4. Personification of a plant – unusual, which makes this stand out!
