WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: FRIENDS – GETTING ON SWIMMINGLY.


 

The photo challenge needs some friends,
And I have here a winner;
The message that this couple sends:
‘Won’t you drop in for dinner?’

 

Young friends you see with medals worn,
Which they have earned for swimming;
Displaying what now both adorn,
Enthusiasm brimming!

 

That sisters also can be friends
Is proved in this example,
And scenes like this quite make amends
For fights we’re going to sample!

But human friends are fickle, so
To get one that’s not phoney,
A dog is a good way to go –
Or else, start young with pony!

    Oh my goodness the girls are getting so big and beautiful. Wouldnt it be lovely to see the four of them playing together? I can just hear the conversations between Little R and Little J. Not too sure about the younger ones, C-Bear is inclined to be a little rough!

      That would be such fun to see and hear! Don’t worry, young J can be a little tiger too, and is quite amazingly strong. When she has a handful of hair and a beatific smile, it is a major chore to pry her loose!

    I love your poems! The first shot is so good it looks like they were staged or something.
