How far back can you remember?
I remember, I remember when I was very small.
I remember my mother going away
Coming home with a valise of presents.
Two silk dresses.
I remember how they felt.
Light as a sigh.
Mine the luscious colour of the inside of a peach.
My sister hers the colour of an early morning sky
My darling, darling older sister Mona celebrates a December birthday. Perhaps it is because she is a December baby she embraces Christmas with more joy, more excitement than any one I know.
The perfect birthday card for my sister’s 83rd birthday.
