Sunday Photo Fiction – Waterspout wishes

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Filling Station” by Elizabeth Bishop: dirty, careful, suit, assist, porch, doily, begonia, stitch, waters, rows, softly, automobiles

Pink swan and waterspout wishes
Begonia on the porch softly swaying
Trees and sky reflected on the waters
Careful not to scare the fishes

Fishes on the lake as we splash
Some dirty automobiles being washed
The man in suit wants some assistance in his room
And then he was out in a flash

Flash of wonder as they stitch
Rows and rows of doilies all embroidered
They’re all being prepared for the grand reception
The couple who are being hitched

Hitched for life and guests with mixed drink
Blue umbrellas open and giving shades
Waterspout wishes and three-tiered wedding cake
And all the bridesmaids wearing pink*
