Lure of Pink

The splashing of pink rain boots announced her impending arrival. And my heart used to beat louder, till she put me at ease with her silly banter and impromptu song-and-dance routines.

It is a story that started at the age of three, and has continued for five decades.She has such a bubbly personality, Every cell in my body comes alive with her nearness, and the taste of fresh strawberry lingers on my tongue.

The ice cream cart has arrived. The seller is a great entertainer, though he is advancing in age, just like me.

My wife stands behind me with hands on her waist,

“Gerard, you are not a kid any more.”
