1 Green Bottle. Today’s prompts for 30 April 2022: GREEN & STAIRWAY


Stairway To Heaven Poem

If tears could build a stairwell
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven
And bring you home again.

No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say good-bye…
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.


Sadly my mum passed away in October last year. 95 years young with dementia 😢

No funeral at the time of COVID Lockdown. Our family is having a memorial day at the end of May at Cornwallis beach in Auckland where our family used to have a holiday home.

For Mum


[posted in advance of Mother’s Day this year- Mum would not know even if she was still here]


This month’s WordPress prompt is GREEN (for April 2022).
Combine GREEN and today’s daily prompt (recycled from 2016) if you wish.

I suggest that the WordPress monthly prompt initiative is likely to be more successful if we combine the prompt GREEN each day with the daily prompt for the same date in 2016.

Sadly new posts cannot be added to the old WordPress daily prompts again!  See:

    Happy Birthday Mum.
    It is sad you are no longer here.
    You would have been 96 today.

    Mum only had one TIA that we know about. You must have had a very difficult time Phyllis.


  3. Covid interrupted our lives on so many important levels denying closure. My dear friend of 30 plus years passed away and we couldn’t have a funeral for her, not even a small get together. My only relief was a lovely phone call we managed two weeks prior to her passing. It’s a double loss isn’t it. Losing someone dear, and not being able to say goodbye.

      I can understand how you feel from my experience with my mum’s passing. Mum had dementia, did not know who we were, and when we left after visiting probably did not know we had come. Fortunately she never had COVID.


      1. Before my mother passed she had 12 strokes and she could see and move but had no iidea who I was. Amazing how much that hurt. Even tho I understood why.
