While She Is Anne With An 'E'

Click on image to enlarge...

 Victoria is thrilled to be given the part of Anne in their school's spring drama, Anne of Green Gables... I have fun playing Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert, Mrs. Rachel Lynde, Gilbert, Diana and whoever else needs playing while she memorizes her lines:)
Suddenly I had the sensation, as we practiced and laughed, of a silk canvas being tugged from beneath our feet!

Tip-toeing tick-tock
Obscure flash-freeze
Etched on a canvas
Of memories

Soft as silk slippers
Dancing on air
Soon our here
Is over there

Quiet comes crashing
Through bars of dust
Filling thought-vessels
With wanderlust

Then, back to the future
We hurry, afraid
Of missing a memory
Yet being made
