Microfiction Monday

He would stand in the relentless sun
for the artist only a second longer
it was so infernally hot
inside the wool poncho and leather boots

Oh dear, the trials and tribulations of a model! You have a unique take on this week's picture. It does look like he is posing! Excellent!

Been there, done that, can feel the sweat rolling down my back now -- and it's bone chilling cold here in Seattle! Ah, the power of words! Terrific take for the day! Enjoy your week!!

I hope he at least was paid handsomely for his troubles...will need the money to buy cream for the heat rash he is sure to have! LOL.
Have a great week. Cheers!
