October 24.20: Coping


In a stroke of good luck,

my camera in hand,

a great photo op

came upon me unplanned.

“You’re a beauty indeed!”

I gushingly said.

“Oh, pshaw,” she replied,

and of course turned her head.

Such taunting reveals

the ignoble ruse:

you’ve morphed once again,

my intractable muse!

  1. Happy Saturday, Maureen, and thank you for the smile. Smiles are good. 🙂

  2. She’s got plenty of perches to choose from. How that related to your Muse, only she could say.

    • It was her contrariness that gave her away. Turning her head away just as I snapped the photo. Taunting me into thinking I had it. Same thing she does with writing.
