Laura and Lily

Laughing like larks

Lying in the grass

Lauding secrets

A loving link betwixt them

Like lightening

Linking hands

They know

They know

If only for a moment

Life’s light, love and longing

Laura and Lily are ladies

The prompt by Karin was to write about the real using the artifice of our craft. She provided several of her pictures from the exhibit of Picasso’s works.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. Lovely, Carol–I love that feeling of friends/sisters/compatriots–agh, and maybe they’ll not have to be waiting or can change the mode of that–but certainly young girls often feel that way–you have caught that so well. Thanks much for participating in the prompt! k.

  2. LOVE your imagination, Carol! Keep on, my friend!! I can just imagine you with pencil (pen) in hand writing frantically as the thoughts pour forth, then stopping, scratching out as better words come …. Just wonderful!!! ❤

  3. I liked reading this, Carol. Maybe a little latent homosexuality here? I had a close buddy buddy thing like your Lily and Laura. He went into the Army, I moved away, and we never saw or even heard from again. Way back when. But I know too, that girls have tighter bonding with friends than guys do. I have two daughters and three sons. The twin boys have a very tight bond still, enough so that one wife has a little jealacy.
