Stone # 4

she lies entangled

duvet

cushions

half-closed brown eyes

beg for attention

from across her bent knees

moving pictures flash

out a story –

glass slippers

difficult love

fairytales where a fish and a bird

can love forever –

coffee

fluffy milk

buttery pastries

Sunday morning

in the middle of the week

  1. “Sunday morning in the middle of the week” – every one of us knows what that means, and it’s even more luxurious than those Egyptian cotton towels!

    I wish I had a croissant right now…. The power of words!

    1. Sadly there are those that don’t. The Daughter’s best friend is a local vet nurse and she recently rescued five abandoned kittens. They were all flea ridden, full of worms and the cat flu – it makes me so angry I could spit !!!!

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
