Laughing Ladies


Strolling around the cornerIMG_3240

in the Jardin du Luxembourg

I can hardly believe my eyes –

four of you

ensconced upon your marble bench

emitting laughter and joy

through your sculpted presence.

My heart skipping a beat

as I laugh out loud with you.


Giddily enjoying one another’s company,

sitting about in your robes

sharing a spa day,

simply being,

delighting in each others presence.


The sculptor wove her magic

with you,

and I pause to wonder,

‘Who are you?’

Your kinship and love of life

evidenced through your posture,

and facial expressions,

giddy with the delight of this moment,

this life.

Such wonder in art,

the marble stone

conveying the very life

of you.
