5-6 word memoirs

Someone in my writing group suggested doing summaries of your life in 6 words-
seems like a haiku life almost, anyway did a few in 5/6 words- here they are.

Life

Ocean girl dives for poetry dreams.

I look for words out windows.

Rain is my memory eulogy.

Dry plants beat my brother’s coffin.

Mother dreams big daughter banker.

Father dreams big daughter academic.

Daughter dreams big great parent.

Brother dreams sister stops hopeless dancing.

Sister dreams brother stops hopeless attitude.

Yellow are my feathers to fly.

Blue are my weaknesses denied.
