Shhh...

   

I wrap my secrets
around you
like a fur stole,
clasped at the throat
with a promise.


A few words for Tess at Magpie Tales and all the Toads in the Imaginary Garden.

  1. Short, but I think more evocative maybe for presenting a single unified image--I can feel the promise of a secret, close and soft.

  2. Yes--wonderfully distilled, sensual--I have nothing to do with Fifty Shades of Grey--but this seems to me much more evocative! Thank you, Mary. k.

    1. Thank you Karin. Much appreciated. I did read the book and it was so badly written I have no desire to see the movie.

    1. Ah, Debi that's brilliant. I am not a fan of furs by the way, and I was wondering if that slightly sinister part of the whole fur industry came through.
