I have had sick kids lately and hope to be around visiting and commenting soon...
A Miracle Envisioned
I'm a young, single lady
searching for a man.
(I admit it, reluctantly, secretly)
Not just any man, mind you,
I desire the man of my dreams.
('tis no small order)
Playfully, wistfully, I lean back
upon a bit of 1936 history
(how cool is that?)
Sir Giles Gilbert Scott.
(does not his name make you swoon?
Scrumptious word, swoon, perfect
for Savannah, Georgia)
commemorated for good ol'
King George the V, this K6 silver
"Jubilee" kiosk, cast iron red
wishing for a bit of luck...
(a touch of magic)
Can't help think of Superman;
I believe he'd be charmed
with my vintage dress. I look left,
look right, close my eyes,
envision royalty, a heroic man
taking my hand, kneeling,
professing his love at first sight...
(Hey a miracle could happen)

This is for Magpie Tales #105. Click on this link to see the photo prompt and the amazing poems and short vignettes created by this amazingly talented group of poets and writers. (The photo above is linked with this week's "The Creative Exchange".
This is also linked with Poetry Jam - This week's theme: A miracle we've witnessed... I tweaked it a little bit and changed it to wishing for a miracle ... hope that is OK. Linked as well with IGWRT's "Open Link Monday"
There were a number of kiosk (phone booth) versions made in Britian and the K6 was a bit smaller and had the glass front similar to this one.... but I could be wrong. For the sake of the poem, I went with it the 1936 (5?) version. We certainly had FUN posing here, laughing and commenting similarly as I wrote here in this poem.
Below is a link showing what some are doing with these kiosks (a bar, shower).

And here is a fun piece for Sensational Haiku Wednesday (this week's word is: draft)
Demurely dressed, poised
Drafting plans to catch a MAN
Heed her hidden claws!
and here is a photo of my "draft" horse - A Friesian Sport horse (which means 1/2 Friesian)... Sebastian.
