Today’s PAD prompt was “sound”.  Here’s my sound memory…



Sweet Notes

The  sound of him singing

“Sweet Caroline”

at the top of his voice

from the shower

brings a smile and warms

my heart

I am amazed

at the change in him


who would have

ever thought

he’d be a Neil Diamond fan?

this tall boy-man

who left home to be a soldier

and returned

so thin and worldly-wise


yet I still hear

the boy in his voice

and see it in his grin.
