It sounds really good!
Both the poem and the port!

That marks the end of the evening, I think...

Beautifully done!

Selma said...

Your imagery is always so compact and clever. Evey syllable is so well placed. LOVE!!!

Nighty night!

So clever - any port in a storm! The rose works well too, as the woman has an aging aspect. k.

Time for some beauty sleep. Nice!

Stafford Ray said...

I agree with Selma... simple, concise and every image is of a withdrawing, a closing and an ending. That's how I saw her too.

I love that you included the rosy expression of the artwork in your haiku, Tumblewords. Endings always hold a soft sort of sadness. Thank you for sharing this fabulous work. =D

Yea,
"it's over" Is all over this painting

Geraldine said...

You've made every word count, as usual Sue. Love the painting too.

Brian Miller said...

there is much heaviness in your verse...i hope she gets a final bow...

Mad Kane said...

You capture that image so beautifully and so concisely.

This verse is very evocative; now how about a short story... what happened?
It reminds me of the stamps I bought at the PO the other day of poets.
