Three Sisters

three sisters on holiday at the shore
a time away from husbands, work, children
on the boardwalk in a small shop they buy matching hats and dresses
laughing and teasing as they do so, slipping into old familiar roles
after supper they walk barefoot for miles on the beach
arm in arm, leaning into each other, sharing their stories, cherishing each moment
knowing it will never happen again

maple, sycamore, walnut
9-12" tall
they are hollow, the hat crown a friction fit stopper
the dots are inlay
each contains the scent of a different perfume
