I Don’t Remember…

kris & pearl colorized

I don’t remember my sister Pearl

in her blue organdy

Christmas dress.

Or my three year old self

twirling and swirling in the

parsonage backyard


Years later, when I thought of

moving to Idlewild, I saw

myself in my minds eye,

arms outstretched, head

thrown back, eyes closed, twirling.

the grass, the woods, the lake

swirling around me.
