Poet's United - Vice Versa #11 "Proof"

Proof

Of roses red she prattled and praised,
school girl giddy, unique proof
he loved her.

Glad my ordinary man's
dishpan hands did more
than reach for his wallet.

Although...
I'll never condemn a man
who does both!

This made me smile. What clever use you made of the words. A man with dishpan hands is a real treasure!

Margaret, you said so much, in a few stanzas, love the dishpan hands--actions are some of the most beautiful gifts, though a few roses and trinkets can be nice too--big smiles for this poem! And your photos are amazing!!

Amen, sister!

Good to have a man that does the washing-up [even unprompted at times :-)]
Words were well hidden and functional, which is not always easy to do.

Haha! :-) I wish I found a Rosie myself, and I would gladly let her take over the economy. If only she promised to buy a dishwasher. :-)
