Magpie 53: She Kept Her Perfume In A Crystal Salt Shaker...

Photo by Tess Kincaid
Challenge from Magpie Tales

she kept her perfume
in a crystal salt shaker
she wore her hair
long and piled on top of her head
fastened
with two walnut
hair sticks
embedded with turquoise
she wore only dresses
and long skirts with flowing blouses
every night
she read poetry
by candle light
she disliked shoes
preferring to go bare foot
she lived out and away
at the base of the mountain
in an old school bus...
different colored silk scarfs
curtained each window
lit up at night
as a Kaleidoscope
while she danced in the moon light...
