Morning Observation - A River of Stones


saw a woman with orange hair this morning
bright neon orange
dancing down the sidewalk 
brown arms reaching for the sky
fingers snapping out a beat
face upturned grinning at the sun


just down the street another woman
frowning into sun's glare
blonde hair all business
arms locked across chest
foot tapping with impatience
waiting to cross

it's all relative
but
I'm still smiling at that orange hair


A River of Stones

  12. I had deep purple hair for a few years, lol.

    I do like your contrast between the two, and the way you finish this.
