A night at Calibogue. (Blogophilia 2.7)

Hunter moon throws satin light
Across Calibogue Sound
Lighting the empty table
Cardboard cartons, fortune cookies
In crumbs on painted surface.

Slips of paper laid carefully
One says "It's all in the stars"
The other "My favorite holding
Period is forever".

A lipstick stained glass
Sits next to a plain one
Silk dress laid carefully
Over the chair.
Barefoot prints leading to water.

The man puts his camera away.
The job is done
Client will be pleased.

  1. The client will be pleased - but is he pleased? That might be the more important question
