Jumping naked on the bed
brown legs sturdy
potato chips clutched
and crisply flying
crunching
   graceful
     soaring dance

Jumping naked on the bed
grainy salty bed of chips
glee abandoned
childhood rapture
curls hopping
legs hop-scotching

Jumping naked on the bed
giggles and brown eyes
evening coming
jumped the sky to dark
you did
lit
  with lithesome
childhood glee

Time delights in
captured moment
loving eyes can see
though blinded
down these naked
years without you

Jumping naked on the bed




 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.
(ee cummings)

Hi little Mommie~
A great big hug to you, love.
Oh, Martie ... it has to be so difficult.
Cherish these lovely memories of Michelle
even though they have to bring tears.
Someday, the smiles will outnumber the tears.
God be with you, my friend.
I love you.

I have to admit...the title caught my eye...I don't know what I expected and quite honestly surprised by the content...I am truly sorry for your loss...but this simply enchanting...  

Wonderful portrayal...

Marge--Thank you for your abundance of love.

Sy--I think you're wonderful

Breathe--I know, the title is a little titillating, but thanks for reading and for your sweet reply.
