 Pages Of A Woman's Soul

You wore your polka dot bow tie
and your bright green corduroy shirt.

When I asked you if you were sure that
was what you were wearing,
worrying you'd be embarrassed…

…scratch that -

worrying I'D be embarrassed,

you smiled…

"It's Christmas," you said.

Unabashedly you made your entrance;
a bold soul, embracing the room
with your individuality

and everyone smiled
or laughed,
or shouted
"Merry Christmas!"

And you caught my eye,
winking and mouthing the words,


Duly noted.
