In Black and White

In Black and White

Mama and Donna…
splashing in streams,
bouncing on horseback,
giggling about guys,
sporting hand-me-down clothes
and hand-me-down values-
of Family, Country, and God.

Mama and Donna…
friends forever,
sharing joys, sorrows,
laughter, tears.
Virtuous women,
handing down values-
of Family, Country, and God.

-Alisa B. Bates-
