Carol Moore's Mountain Moments for June 2, 2008

Mountain Moments
Two tired girls
dirty barefeet
playing at the park
with granddaddy
sitting on church steps
sucking on honeysuckle flowers
Why are they called honeysuckle, I ask
Because they have honey
are sweet
and you suck on them
response from Maggie
Millie holds up a brown haggard blossom
These are the sweetest
they don't look like they would be sweet
as she bites into the honey
crumpled flowers and leaves
gathered for the compost
girls gathered for cool drinks

Receipe for Fun
Two girl friends age five and six
Flat plastic container
Plastic soda can holder with six circles
bubble blowers
Mix all together on a sunny day
Watch the fun begin
Add a towel
Hose with several settings
for bubble spills

Carol Ingram Moore
Take time to play, create, and have fun!
