Two Oldies go walking in the winter sun

with 8 comments

Today a walk
in the winter sun
Zoe on a skate board
dog on the run
Jimmie swings past us
laughing his glee
His mother calls careful
seeing white hair
“Old folks have the right-of-way
boys ride with care.”
And we know
the next generation
is going to be just fine.

  1. Fran I didn’t need the painting I am looking at a photo of you and Jim on my mantlepiece and can easily picture your white heads out in the winter sun .
    Perhaps a gliitter of grey between the white locks that adds to the distinction of being
    given the well earned title of ” Crone”…woman and man…..Sund 6.7.08
