Monday WRites 183


SUNDAY AT THE MALL
Bold Poinsettias, reddened now,
cheer the pace of shopper's footsteps,
still though, allowing for a pause,
a breath, to listen to music of violins,
securing the swag of the musician's vibe.
Some Sundays at the mall swing that way.
Audience voices lend to microphones.

NOTE: Linking to dVerse meant I may have to edit my poem when the quadrille prompt appeared. So yes my edit was the word cheer instead of pulse
