Regret 3That I didn’t get to know Freddie Dunlop better

That I didn’t get to know Freddie Dunlop better
Defiant  mop of thick white hair - a Thurles face
Slim photographer - single lady – a leviathan in her time
Pictured my youth - talked to me as a person
Wore large pink hats with style and verve
An opinion on every topic - varnished nails her insignia
Morris Minor mirror polished - a smiling face
Masking latest mischief - rascal laughter burbling up
I knew her measure - I knew her loneliness
Not enough to let me help her - defensive joking
Her personal armour – her way of coping

    Hi. Another great write. I can see Freddie Dunlop and her Thurles face. Little things, forgotten,surface when you look at a blank page. Eamon

    It sounds like you are describing someone famous or something! Your style is quite unique, Liz. I feel like you knew some very interesting people in your life. LUv, Andrea
