Time to smooth

combine retrato 2REDUX

When night is almost done,
And sunrise grows so near
That we can touch the spaces,
It´s time to smooth the hair

And get the dimples ready,
And wonder we could care
For that old faded midnight
That frightened but an hour.

(Emily Dickinson, The Collected Poems)

  1. The opening two lines encapsulate so much ))) and the triptych seems to contain three different women or a woman who can play the role of three others ))) smiles ;))

  2. Beautiful set of self portraits, my dear friend!
    And so beautiful poem from Emily Dickinson too.

  3. When the dawn is creeping in
    and rays of sunshine
    are lying down gently on her face
    thoughts leaked
    as locks of hair of hair between fingers
    [MrsDalloway at you with warm smile]

    wonderful portrait, my Dear !
