There’s A Woman

Rating: 4.3

In every picture
there’s a woman
an outstretched hand
holding out scissors
carrying a garland
handing out a tool, a ribbon, a tray of certificates, awards
leaning against a car
a tyre, a bottle of soda
she’s serving a drink
pouring coffee
smiling nodding
watching
but hardly waiting.

she’s sitting it out
observing it happen
taking down
the dictation of life
Even
typing out decisions of life and death


Sentences.
In every picture there’s a woman.
If you look very hard
You might even see her.

I agree, there is a woman hidden or behind every man and its creativity. On the other hand it is the same with a woman, don't you agree. At least a shadow of a father with her. 'smiling nodding watching but hardly waiting' 'she's sititing it out observing it happen' 'even typing out decisions of life and death sentences' Very beautifully and meaningfully woven. I rate for this 10+ in spite of the fact that written on a common topic but in a new format. Palitha Ranatunge
