In May -------------------------------------------
You look different in May than in April:
your espresso hair is now Maxwell House brown.
New freckles dot your nose for the sun brought you back to life like it brings back the irises,
and you smile now though you never did when the grass was dead.
funny how people come alive in different seasons. perhaps this person is a summer child. i like the description of the hair as "maxwell house" and "espresso." very descriptive. i am a fall person myself. it is my season of passion....
I love how you used the coffee to describe the hair, lets you really see that rich brown colour, but it needs something else, some little bit is missing. I love it all the same though, wonderful write, m'lady. ~Sicobe R. Crow
i actually don't like mays. But thats just me. This is a very interesting angle for looking at seasons. I think you could make it longer but i say that a lot. i think you could do better without the maxwell but maybe that means something to you i dont know. good job anyway.
i think i'm one of those people, except my hair goes from cherry chocolate red to Maxwell House brown. hee. you are superb at capturing moments that are simply "more" in terms of inner thoughts than the length of the observation. =]
Very Nice "Maxwell House brown" I like that alot. I like freckles myself. It's cool you picked something some view as an imperfection, and put a positive spin on it. I enjoyed the read thanx for sharing.
