Sing Back

Old Bank Street, Manchester, UK by R.A.D. Stainforth

Sing back a frame 
That did exist
A fiery re-call becomes
A chance to repair
To craft a new deal
From time gone
Add your wishes
This moment
Like a boat's sail
Will billow full again


Attempting a triple prompt...

My favorite lines are....

'this moment
like a boat's sail
will billow full again.'

Sunday’s Whirligig is available to help “fill in the gaps” created by Brenda’s three-month absence from The Sunday Whirl. I hope you’ll consider joining in the whirling fun. Check it out!

A chance to repair...Always calls forth home.

Very good Gail . . ,
I especially liked . . .

A fiery re-call becomes
A chance to repair
To craft a new deal

Well it sounds better when it is with the rest . . .
