The Day She Wore Flour in Her Hair


The Day She Wore Flour in Her Hair


I saw her clearly edged

in golden light,

through sun rays poured

and filtered

through old stained glass ..

She had flour

in her hair and had been

baking bread ..

I simply cannot tell you,

just how hungry

we both then were, that day ..

                You shouldn't fool around while baking, that's how you get Munchkins.
                I felt there was a lightheartedness to this poem. It brought a smile to my face and brightened an otherwise rainy day. It also sparked my appetite. - Phil A.

                • Neville

                  Two birds with one stone eh' that feels like a win win from where I'm typing .. Cheers Phil .. Neville

                • Bella Shepard

                  Sounds like a recipe to tempt the taste buds, in more ways than one. Soft and gentle, it makes one sigh. Lovely dear friend!

                  • Neville

                    The very thought of you sighing, is more than enough, to keep me writing, my very dearest of Bella's .. Neville

                    • Mottakeenur Rehman

                      The poem's simplicity belies its complex layers of meaning, making it a touching exploration of human connection and the significance of seemingly ordinary .

                      • Neville

                        My most sincere and heartfelt thanks my friend .. All the very best of All Good Things are wished for You & yours .. Your literary friend, Neville

                      • Parisab

                        She met your most vital need (for bread) I canโ€™t begin to imagine the power of symbolism-โ€œI saw her clearly edgedโ€ on the (church like) stained glass imagery-I see holy, maternal, and sensual represented by the same woman-This is one of my favorites of your body of workโ€ฆ

                        • Neville

                          How extraordinarily kind of you .. I am most honoured my fine literary friend .. Neville
