Spring Afternoon (Blogophilia 7.9)

There she is
New wine in small porcelain skin
Singing joy to the Lord on a porch swing
Voice having no key
Melody having no rhythm
Daring to be honest
Fearing no labor
Little brother begins to dance
Walking backward toward the door
In a flash
Mom reaches out
To hug them one more time.

    1. They are. I was sitting in the house looking at some horrible news story when I heard the little girl singing. It made my day.
