This really makes me smile..can I come along?
That is one chilly looking afternoon. :) I'd still be cold even with all those clothes on.
Very liberated of them, skating on a frozen lake or pond without escorts. Those clothes would drag them to the bottom if they went through the ice. Brrr.-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
How perfect - ladies ahead of their time! Brava! (for both the poem and the sentiment,)
A different approach! Yay for the liberated ladies!
Wild women don't worry. Wild women don't sing the blues!
Ladies of independant minds, I like that.
there was a song "afternoon delight" ....loved it....yes dump the escorts and go for the afternoon delight...bkm
Liberated indeed! pondering a skate on the pond.
You show em ladies! woohoo!!!
Brilliant, how free that must have felt to them. My grandmother used to tell me of the times she 'escaped'.
Escorts out of sight- thank Heaven!freedom- except the photographer,a friend or spy? Thanks.
Who needs escorts?! LOL
So fun.Love haiku and it is heightened by the rhyme.
spot on! That's my Grandmother!
You have succinctly expressed the untold attitudes I suspect they embraced. Well done!
Wonderful! (except I happen to know her brother was along, since he was the photographer) :P
cute words..what a fun read.
Neat take on the pic Helen, but I must say, it is such a relief, being liberated from escort duty to spend the day at the pub!
Who needs escorts to have a good time?
What a relief, indeed, to have no escorts! Wonderful haiku!
Who needs them? They better get back to cook and clean.
Ahead of their time indeed....and we have come a long way baby. :-)Love this Helen! :-)
anything about women standing on their own 2 feet makes me smile... - SY
They're out for a good time! Nice one!
Women's liberation before its time. Nice!
Good Haiku for a chilly day! :)
Lovely. The words 'afternoon delight' conjure up such a sense of freedom!
...escort not in sight... The middle one does look a bit mischievous. :)
Helen,"Not in sight"but I imagine these lovlies were seldom unaccompanied.rel
succinct and lovely.
Oh to be without the men for a while..... sweet liberation! :D
You can actually see your words in the looks on their faces. Great take!
'Escorts not in sight' what freedom! i love the simplicity and clarity of your poem. very nice.
Interesting take on the prompt. Yes, your poem's simple and clear, as the previous comment said. I like how the first and third lines share both rhythm and rhyme.
oh how quick and nice! Quickly posted and neatly said.
But who took the picture? And how did those hats keep their ears warm, perched on top of all that hair?Nice poem!
