  1. My WIP is a conversation with a mom who has passed. Writing this way added a whole lot of heart to a story that was missing its soul.

  2. Just reading your prompt made me emotional. I thought of my Bubie and how I’d like to thank her for her quiet gentle influence and for giving me my sweet dad.

  3. Barbara A. Edwards says:

    From the Jewish Nr. that the Germans Nazis burned into innocent arms My prompt is “Forget Not the Forgotten”.

  4. Barbara A. Edwards says:


    I wrote this poem not long ago. But I still wish to share it with all of my Jewish Brothers and Sisters. Some of you may already be aware of it and some not.

    Dedicated to Shabbat and the Holocaust.
    In Memoir to the Jewish Nation, Walter Stern and his Beloved Sister Barbara who passed on this Year


    My People
    Be as I
    One with Adonai.

    You will Become
    As he Commands
    An Omnipotent Warrior
    From Generation to Generation.

    Never will you be Alone
    Angels in the Mist
    Will wipe your Tears.

    Ye shall Never be Forsaken
    Nor Betrayed.

    Now and Forever More
    Thru Eternity.


    Barbara A. Edwards.
