have a ball.

Standard

i love her final gesture

and it made me give pause –

if i were to go today

i would leave behind the following things for others to enjoy:

$7.oo, a sock monkey, photographs, glitter, collage projects, letters and books.

i hope there is no fighting over the monkey.

always welcome.

Standard

the ponies and friends all came out for the dance party

this time is was a love fest and tea

everyone was welcome

all colors, sizes, shapes and species 

they were in their finest fancy fashions

and ready to have fun.

one pony told them she didn’t want to come

because it looked like a boring party

they were kind of sad but then they thought

maybe some other ponies had been mean to her once

and she was just acting that way

because she didn’t want to get her feelings hurt again

so they invited her back and showed her how to be nice.

“kindness is always fashionable, and always welcome.”

Standard

the last holdouts at the grandies’ slumber party at peaches’ (my) cottage.

cousins, cartoons, baby golf, talking dogs, books,

made-up group stories, pizza, mac ‘n cheese, apple juice, suckers,

stuffed animals, laughing, whispers,

sleeping bags, pillows, pj’s, flashlights,

and not much sleep.
