Red Coat and White toqueA Story by Mariette H.
A Christmas story I have a little story to share with you about a woman with red coat and white toque!
Red coat, white hat, bent with age,with trembling hands
Wrinkles on her face that reads like her life story
Turning her head with a trying effort
"Could you please help me? she asks
She no longer has the clear vision of bygone days
The youth now a memory etched in a compartment of her mind
"Connect these two wires together"
To meticulous for her trembling hands
Glowing from her window
A magic show ,like a little kid with glittering eyes, intoxicated with pure joy, I imagined
A small dog that barks
Her only friend perhaps?
"Anytime" I said with a smile.
With a broken nervous like laugh of excitement she steals a kiss ,and I give her one back.
