Tea sets trimmed with prissy pink tulips

Placed on grass linens by tiny hands

Sisters hard at play in sand and water

Mold dirt like baker’s dough

Cookies, cakes, biscuits, and pies

Imaginations run wild

Soil-covered like flour from the cupboard

With no worries or cares

Only time

As if life’s clock had stopped ticking

Acorn cherries and green leaf sprinkles

Look pretty enough to eat

Hours spent until the sun’s setting

Making Mud Pies


This was one of my favorite things to do with my sister when we were children.  My favorite toys were my tea sets and my baby dolls.  I was born to be a mommy 🙂
