delighted

Jernee, sitting on my chair like — well, as if she owns it.

delighted

micropoetry

double-trouble
team two,
my favorite girls.

four-legged creatures
two big hearts
intense love

everlasting joy
their presence
makes me feel alive

 
Nala is fourteen years old now. She’s visiting and will be going home soon. Jernee still clings to her as if the world sits atop her head.

*Author’s Note: As Nala ages, I find myself wondering what will become of Jernee when her best friend/cousin has no more strength to fall for her shenanigans. I love to watch the two of them interact with each other. There is this silent code that I am not privy to and will never know. I am amazed that they seem to have secrets from me.
