retail

i went to get new glasses
rene' said, oh i love your scarf.
the upshot was she wanted one.
i had made a new one unlike the old.
so i washed and pressed the bloodroot dyed one.
and showed her and she snapped it up.
 so this is the one left over:
there's a commuter here
a young amish guy 
going home
do you see the standardbred?
it feels cold and heavy this day.
chilled to the bone.
i am, however, being
nurtured, loved.
may you be, as well.

Yes, I see the horsey. Thankyou, Velma.

Velma said...

thanks, dee!
kait, there might be a strip or two of reflective tape on the rear of the buggy and maybe one tiny lantern, lit by a candle. very dangerous
faisal, i photograph amish seldom, as they do NOT appreciate it, but from my dining room seemed ok.
