Protocol


As you walk
your yellow dress flutters
like a windy pennant
on your laughter's breeze.

"Look! A magpie!"
You stop and salute, solemnly,
then oblige me to do the same.

Summer's here.
It's official.

  1. I can picture her; she's in a meadow filled with buttercups and daisies, wearing the smile of the Cheshire cat! I can hold on to summer a little while longer...Thank you :)

  4. I like her in yellow, as opposed to the magpie's black and white. Not sure about "windy" as a modifyer for pennant (love the word "pennant" though).
