DogPile and other business

I am sorry about taking such a long break. The last couple of weeks of December has been rough for me and my family. I was sick  in bed with the flu for a week. On Christmas day, one family member and a close family friend passed away. During the month of December, I have been dealing with the situation that is the inspiration for the poem below:dogpile wunboxingkim

Gone, But Not Forgotten

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Gone, But Not Forgotten.”

I have enclosed the photo  of our former home. We were the lucky ones to sell a house in less than six months in 2011(in the US). Upon sharing the photo, I felt the need to share the poem I wrote during the process of selling it. Our memories of this house are strong, bonding my family.

Help – Family Needed

 by Kim Hewison

My house needs a new family

It’s time for us to be moving on,

Back to where we came from,

Six hundred and seventy miles away.

It’s been a good house,

Warm in winter, cool in summer,

Protecting us from storm after storm,

Solid under our feet

When the earth shook around us,

It’s heard our laughter echo off it’s walls,

Sheltering us in times of sorrow.

Time to say good bye.

Time to hear the pitter-patter of new feet.

One Year Anniversary Freebie

The book is about getting lost and Stranger Danger from a child’s point of view. Recommended ages 3 – 6. Children a little older may enjoy reading it for themselves or reading it to younger children.

Digging for Roots – Home vs Home

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly writing challenge: “Digging for Roots.”

“In this perpetual tug-of-war between now and then, finding the footing to develop a sense of home is difficult, if not impossible, particularly for those who may find themselves stuck between cities, states, or countries.”

Angular – The Genesee Belle paddlewheel

HPIM0517.JPG

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Angular.”

“Not to put too fine a point on it, though this week, we challenge you to show us what “angular” means to you.”

June 2008, Genesee Belle at Crossroads Village, Flint, MI

The lines left in the water caught my eye. When framing them, I loved the contrast between the vertical and horizontal lines.
