Today is the state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II and a bank holiday in the UK, giving everyone in the UK the chance to mourn the Queen in their own way. There have been some beautiful memories shared of the Queen recently, but my favourites are those in which we saw her smile.
Today’s tale was made with the Poet Kit
Want to play along?
I love playing around with the magnetic poetry blocks. I’m no poetry writer so I prefer to create a short story of sorts. The kits can be found here (and they are free):
The solo swan continued her rounds of the pond where her memories had been happiest.
Yet every day her heart ached just a little more.
The light shining through under the golden bridge seemed enticing.
With calm and dignity she swam towards it.
Returning to her (soul) mate.
Written in memory of our beloved Queen Elizabeth II.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a solo swan swimming under a small bridge.
Did you know as a general rule, swans mate for life? If a mate is lost then the surviving mate will go through a grieving process just like humans do.
I’ve had so many wonderful responses and enjoyed each and every one. I have tried to reblog a few since the post went out so hopefully, you will have seen some of them trickling through, but here is the list below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). It makes for fantastic reading.
