Chez Alice (haibun)

Sunday brunch had become a tradition for these ladies. Some were divorced; a few never tied the knot and one widowed. They met at work years ago and since  had all retired. For many retirement meant either long overdue travelling with their mate or slipping away into oblivion, but not these ladies.   They  seemed like born again “girls”. They went on road trips together, started a book club, hosted social teas,  attended art exhibits and often took to the streets now and then advocating for change.

  1. It’s really a joy Cheryl Lynn to read so many Troiku and you have mastered this form so well. What a wonderful group you are talking about in this “short story”

  2. Well, now, what a fun group. I knew a group like that in Missouri. And they dressed to the nines, too. Me in retirement, somewhere between travelling and oblivion. Your troiku is delightful!
