"Use the phrases, "red painted lips" and "silken hair".

Mother and daughter out
shopping for a new 
doll.  Passing a hair
salon, daughter sees
manikin in the window.
Painted cherry-red lips,
and a wig of ebony silken
hair.  She turns to
her mother, says, I want
my doll to look just like that.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
