mo’s the oldest, loudest voice
when we played games,
she got first choice.
j & i got second best,
d
eirdre got to do the rest.

mo played princess,
high & royal
w
e played subjects,
loving, loyal.
d
eirdre played, somewhat defiant,
ogre, monster, beast & giant.

 j & i played dukes & knights,
saving ladies in sword fights,
we beat till death the enemy
(which bruised and
battered sister de)
with sleep the reward
for our toil.
mo played princess,
high & royal.

Daily prompt – giant

my anomaly

my little queen
she skipped right past
the princess phase
and went straight on
to queen
less like a figure-headed type
more like a figurine
uncanny, just how elegant
this girl has always been
her eyes intense
her common sense
her skin like
porcelain
her class just doesn’t
dissipate
somehow she never lets it
such perfection is my girl…
i don’t know where
she gets it
