The events in Vegas on October I, 2017
did not remain in Vegas ~ word spread fast.
Young and old, rich and poor, strangers, friends or family.
no discrimination of color, religion or national origin.
Heroes and angels, visitors and locals
appeared out of the crowd and town.

the people who go to warmer climes for the winter

on the bed
placed to perfection
white chenille bedspread
learned to read and write here
best penmanship practiced here
.
Note:
I did have a desk and chair next to the bed
but preferred to lay on my stomach to write
and my best penmanship seemed to be in
that position.
Reading would be with the pillows behind me…
yes, messing the lines of the bedspread, or
on my stomach. Then bedspread re-turned to
its neat and orderly look !

I chose it because the pillows are covered like
my mother would insist and the intricate print
all lines in order.

curled up
hiding in darkened room
feel her eyes
a mystery to find her
her ‘stash gives her away
