"Sisters"


Sisters

This as youth we learned:

Link hearts and hands,
rely upon instinct and not a little charm,

loose hair to flow upon open air,
spin freely as summer abundance blooms

embrace mother's words to never forget
how happily together we do skip.

by Margaret Bednar, June 25, 2015


Yes a bit cheesy, but I tried to rise to the occasion for "Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Words Count with Mama Zen"  A word list (of which I used six I think) and write a poem of 60 words or less.

We recently traveled to the mountains for the day.  My girls (and a friend) love photo opportunities.  They love to put on summer dresses and pile on LOTS of charm and dance, swing, twirl.  A few ladies in their 60's were inspired and held hands and skipped like my girls were - they ended up giggling and saying how young it made them feel.  Their men WERE smiling as they walked behind them... :)

To get out in the summertime and enjoy the days, to breath in the air, notice the new flowers blooming, the sheep and cows dotting the hills... yes.  I hope they always find time to do this together.

I love your "Sisters together" tonight. Sisters have a special relationship that other type relatives do not share. The pictures were wonderful too, I like the second the best, framed so nicely through the arch.

Outward showings of happiness is contagious. It certainly made their day. It is time travel for old folks to relive! Great photo shots Margaret!

Beautiful photos, a completely uplifting poem, and I love this line: "loose hair to flow upon open air"---it captures the JOY in the piece.

I get the picture of a very fine day, fun and sisterhood. I like the note-poem too, about ladies like me in their 60s.
