Her way (edited)

to my mother

(special thanks to Archie, Albermund and Michel and coolhermit)


When holidays were for wealthier families,

mum made use of the large veranda,

a hose and her cheerful voice shouting 

“Watch out for those waves!”

while my brother and I

belly-slid along the wet floor

like baby seals, gliding

into make-believe.
