Sunday whirl…a vintage feel

Not sure why but this week’s words had a vintage feel. So I stuck them in a silent movie…as you do.
Then I grabbed my favorite victim model and there you are. πŸ™‚

Don’t forget to enter my first ever giveaway

chimes, scattered, mirror, skirted, raw, mist,
straw, scale, vast, curved, edge, tattered

sometimes I feel like an old silent movie where a faint piano is tinkling tunes

words and occasional splotches of colour flutter on the screen

yellow and brown splotches like scattered straw ticking thru the fan

I’m gloriously out of focus, smooth and clean and white

β€œShall we?” he asks me moving lips with nothing to say

and the piano chimes and I can feel my resolve wearing thin

thin like the air at ten thousand feet

thin like the mirror of ice on the pond when the water has warmed to air temperature and all the magical mist has disappeared

thin like the busboy hiding behind the theatre with his cigarette, sniffing a couple of times, raw in the cold

I smooth my full-skirted gown and the moment is curved around us

the world revolves on this scale, round and round and quiet and still and I forget daylight ever existed

until the tattered edge of the end of the movie begins flapping madly in the vast space

    What a lovely delicate feel this has, Veronica. Nicely whirled. I think you should be putting your link in Mister Linky, that is why I couldn’t find you. Nonetheless, I found you πŸ™‚

    Beautifully done! I oved all the images (oh dear, what does that say about my age?) but especially the repetition of thin.
