Petite Pen~November 22, 2022

Today has been a factory day (more on this another post). But luckily, I penned a bit of brevity earlier this week and so today’s petite pen can keep its regular reservation. If you feel moved to write about the off-season, please join me in penning 30 word or less to this subtle painting by Italian artist Massimiliano Ligabue. I’m so grateful for all of my online writing friends.

Happy Tuesday!

Off-season by Massimiliano Ligabue

Check In or Out

Dress above the knee
is invitation
in the off-season,
so I ask, “How much?”
’cause I’m not interested in
unpruned fauna.

Empty reception;
check in or out;
nobody’ll notice.

  1. I stand at the precipice
    waiting, life is continuous
    oblique, and precarious

    my arrival

    I wait my turn
    at the way station
    bags packed, ready to mourn

    Didn’t see that one coming. Always a delight. 💜
