    Painted Toenails

    As they advance
    Air shudders
    Hearts flutter
    Wrapped in silk
    Taut and confident
    Atop spiked leather

    As they advance
    Time stops
    Eyes follow
    Rich caramel
    Proper curves
    Painted toenails

    She carries
    A toy poodle
    An expensive
    Designer purse
    Dark sunglasses
    A book of poetry

    She wrote

    MHenry - the way you wrote this, I could follow your eyes' progression - and found it particularly endearing that they rested on a book of poetry - she wrote - how very appealing anytime and anywhere, but particularly here in the Rhymezone! Now you'll have to excuse me because I want to go and paint my toenails - and work on that book of poetry! This made me smile - thank you.

      Thanks, RLW. I am glad you enjoyed this. It could be you very soon! Keep polishing your apple! And yes, painted toenails are essential. I still like red. Not a fan of green or blue.

    As I read i followed her perfection across the room. End the end I wondered, was she carrying a book of poetry, or was she poetry

      Splendido, Maestro! As always, you bring it all together in the end, this time a delightfully enigmatic one. Top drawer; more!

        Thank you for the encouragement, grant Sensei! Perhaps, I will follow this vixen a little further down the boulevard!
