the letter
From where I'm standing
i can see
a woman
dressed in black;
She leans her back
on the wall;
writes a letter
on a piece of fabric.
A beggar passes by,
leaves a coin
on her feet.
He walks; asks from me
his coin back.
An old man
throws it at me,
the beggar grasps it
in his palm.
he sits at the corner
of the street
takes out his hat
puts the coin in,
crosses his legs...waits..
I turn..I look
at the woman
She has changed her dress;
its colour
 is blue.
I feel her sorrow
and his
inside me
as one.
A tear,
from my left eye,
on my cheek.
The woman
wipes it out
with her silk dress.
She leaves the letter
on my hands;
asks from me
to deliver it
to the beggar.

Dear Vassiliou~
Now this was an interesting piece of writing full
of imagery tugging at the readers imagination-
The perception of the womans changing dresses based
on emotion was phenomenal!
I really liked this!
Best Wishes~
