Observing Sweden – Language Classes – 1

Observations from language school – Swedish for immigrants.

Somali Girls

Rapt in the throes of teenage youth
they frolic amidst sparkling laughter
sharing secrets, observations
late for class, they giggle
walk with ghost-like flowing grace
seem weightless as kaleidoscopic sheets of silk
spill out behind their movements
in diaphanous extension
brilliant shadows.

Animated flower gardens.
