Thread Bare

Oh blue,
You’re the bee’s knees…

Though fragile around edges
There’s an ease in your step
An art to your fray
Comfort in your curve
Strength, come what may.
Vintage indigo charm
My perfect fit…just right.
My thread bare second skin softens
in the afternoon light ~

In Good Company

Last year, my friend Matt and I spent an afternoon at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC…roamed for hours,  in and out of the rooms,  up and down corridors, so much to see.  Matt’s a great gallery companion because he lets me wander as I wish ( a bit haphazardly… ) and doesn’t get annoyed when I suddenly rush past in search of whatever has caught my eye from across a crowded room;) This particular day, we made our way into the contemporary/modern art wing and found ourselves suddenly surrounded by Rothko. Matt sat to contemplate the art… silhouetted in a sea of blue. The intensity of color caught my eye…I took one shot… got lucky and captured the moment. One of my personal favorites ~
