Flash Fiction 55: 9/16/11

Walking just ahead in soft white cotton
a tall and graceful woman
 hair all swept and tidy;
a woman in no hurry
who is never late.                        
She always has a smile, wave
can stroll into a party
or parade.            
We want confidence
to support and brighten
every hour,
cook any troubles
from work or play-

"hair all swept and tidy" great image, as is the whole feel of this piece, a very immediate and real 55.

"cook any troubles" has me intrigued. It goes from Her Majesty to Mother.

we do need women like this one,
life needs helpful hands.

Like Margaret said, she must not have kids!

I admire this woman you described and wish I was "tall and graceful" instead of short and graceful so that as I lose height with aging I won't wind up miniscule and graceful! :0
Truly, this was just beautiful.
