About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Rooted to Haiku

Jenn at http://youknowthatblog.com/

Has selected this week's theme: Roots

Finding ancestors
The roots of our family
Closet skeletons
Woven through the soil
Drinking in their nutrients
Tapestry of roots

Wrenched from their homeland
The horrors of slavery
A true life story

With roots to dye for
A little colouration
Not quite natural


Rooted to the spot
My feet seem stuck to the floor
Paralysed in fear.
