Portrait of a Woman Buttoning Her Blouse

In a window
romantically shadowed
by streetlight
pulling a stray thread
thinking about all the ways
to pronounce the word
angel

For Kerry’s micro-poetry prompt: AND THE MOON

  7. Sometimes the very best is the very briefest--excellent and full of feeling, Marian.

  8. Got to be careful of those stray threads, they often unravel what is necessary.

    The backstreet glimpses of dressing up can be mystifying!
