We sit around the table,
Tea and biscuits and a pile of hats.
We remember, fantasize, and give voice
Protectors, status symbols, fashion statements,
Roles we play and have thrust upon us.
Today we share, hats off,
Bare our souls
And honour our true selves.
For our writing group today we all brought hats, and had fun using them as a starting point for our writing.
We extended our writing in short bursts, (4-5 minutes) describing, memories, fantasy, and monologues. So much fun and variety and some poignant moments too. Thank you to my fellow writers for your honesty and supporting friendship.
