Just a Few Small Things I Like



I like the way
you open windows
in any kind of weather
as if to say hello morning air
thank you for visiting

I like the way
your fingers
navigate a messy ponytail
on weekday evenings
when you let your hair down

I like the way
you say you love me
even when you’re pissed off





NaPoWriMo Day 22! For Susie’s prompt in the Imaginary Garden featuring the artwork of Mi Young Lee

    Crazy over this:
    "I like the way
    your fingers
    navigate a messy ponytail"

  5. There is so much to like. That last one speaks to me. I have spent many days pissing Charlie off, but he loves me in spite of it. :) Thanks for writing!

    How nice to be forgiving. Apparently karma has a way of rewarding the relationship with lots of love both ways. Nice read Marian!

  12. You'd like me, Marian, this is just the way I am. Except perhaps the pony tail, I'm having a thing keeping me from having a Willie Nelson pony tail. We are both counting down now instead of up. :)

  14. Windows and pony-tails: gave me an insightful perspective/imagery of the art.
