Tree of Hope

Tree drips distilled hopes

In this Summer of Courage

Prayers rise as perfume

To Heaven’s censer, God’s throne

He makes haste, calls angel troops

Best Friends Forever (3LineTales)

Three Line Tales, Week 75

We’ve met here every summer since we were six and became instant best friends; we marvel in whispers at the same things; laugh at each other’s jokes; share “weird-family” secrets and stories while eating cherry or banana popsicles together. 

This year, after nagging our parents to death, we’ve got matching bicycles; and having officially become “women”, we drool over older boys as we wonder what sex is really about.

Today we’ve shed our bright bikini bathing suits and jumped into perfect July-warmed water; shrieking at our brave and scandalous midday nakedness, we vow to be best friends forever…still skinny-dipping when time has aged us like wrinkled prunes.

School’s Out

Three Line Tales, Week 74

~~~

Another school year rolled up, placed in storage.

Survivors—chairs and desks—breathe sighs of relief,

Savoring the sweet silence till the bell rings after Labor Day.
