In relationships, it’s the thought that counts…right?
This is an ageless topic I think Steve!
Guaranteed to shatter illusions of intimacy…
Here’s a ‘poem’ I threw together in creative writing group on the same..ish theme.
“Sunlight soap for collars!”,
she taught as she scrubbed
grubby white grey shirts
that once were Sunday’s best.
Up and down the rippled washboard,
sing-song rhythm sweating
her body over the galvinized bath,
in which adult and child bathed
on a Saturday night,
splashing bare stone flags,
froth and old flesh flying!
“Sunlight soap for collars”,
she said as she watched
the young one

Just to keep you company Steven in your creativity.
Why don’t your followers contribute instead of always critiquing???
You don’t need critiquing…tell them to ..buy a washboard!
great Ursula.. thanks for your contributions. It provides some food for thought…I’ll have to re-read this and mull it over more… nicely done!
I don’t feel like I get that much critique.. if anything people may be too nice to me There’s no such thing as being “good enough” and I want to keep getting better. I appreciate anyone taking the time to respond be it a critique or creative contribution .. bring it all on!
that should read..grey white shirts…oh dear!
I love panel no 3!
heheh thanks… technically I can see a lot I would have improved in that panel, but I also just liked it so I left it as-is. A rare glimpse into the softer side of this relationship
But she just could not let it go… Just had to push it to panel #4…
I bet the men think like Dimitri…and the girls probably think it was time to” address” it!!! ?????
