Yoki

Thanks to all who stopped by to join in last Wednesday!

Here's hoping some of you might join me in posting a story with a picture for Wednesday Wit and Wisdom.  The challenge is to post a picture, then write a short story or a poem about the picture.  When you have your story written, you can link up for others to read.  Feel free to also add your picture and story to another link of your choice. The link up is on my WWW page here. This is #24!

Here's my picture story for this week.


My name is Yoki. I was created by Linda Kay's friend, Judy, when she lived in Japan. I have a special place on top of the piano where I have a special view of all around the room. 

Yoki is the name that was chosen for me, as there was a very special lady who shared this name. She was actually from Okinawa, but her features and her style were much like what was created for me. Yoki married an American soldier and came to the United States much like me....transported to a foreign country. Her children were born and raised in the US, but it was always a challenge for Yoki to adapt to the American ways and learn the language. 

Take just a few minutes to notice my beautiful sarong and sash and my elaborate hair style. I'm old that Yoki wasn't quite this fancy, but her heart was full of love for her family and her friends. May she rest in peace.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Linda Kay
