Muddy Footprints – Samantha Sirimanne Hyde and Marilyn Humbert

young neighbours...

we talk of the kids

we never had               

Samantha 

 

our gangster son

the promise of rain

disappears eastward           

Marilyn 

 

the little girl

pulls her mum in —

sunlit trampoline                 

Samantha 

 

a lone boy

watching from the edge

twin cygnets between parents          

Marilyn

  

tropical rain...

muddy footprints

at the orphanage                         

Samantha
