|06:37 pm - Red Coat|
Aching and sneezing, I bring a drabble for the day.
On the Street Style Aesthetic blog, which is photographer Wayne Tippett's collection of his street-style pictures (as the name implies), he posted this amazing photograph of Italian designer and style icon Eleanora Carisi. I was struck by the contrast of the winter park and the very urban woman. I was struck by the red.
And so, "Red Coat", inspired by that contrast and that image:
Her spiked heels pierced the dead leaves underfoot as she prowled. The sharp rustles and soft growls filled the quiet wood.
They knew she was coming, and they ran. She moved faster.
Red was her coat and hood, red the sleek dress-skin underneath. From one clawed hand dangled a bonnet not her own. No one knew which previous victim had lost it along with her life.
She wasn’t a creature of many words. If she caught you, they whispered, you wouldn’t have time to plead. She was too fast.
She wore a red riding coat, and she was the Wolf.
I enjoyed that. Get well soon too!
Thank you, and thank you again! Happy Sunday to you.

And I say that on a 93° afternoon.
Thanks for finding it chilling, and oh dear for it being 93! Too soon, too soon.
Creepy! Suits that picture, for sure. Love the image of the clawed hand and the bonnet.
Thank you thank you! :) And happy Sunday, too, without red-clad wolves.
Ooh, nice. An interesting way to wake up on Sunday. Hugs, L, and thanks for the imagery!
I've been thinking a lot since Friday, F, and I really think we need to embrace the Wolf. (How to do that, I'm still trying to figure out.)

Thanks, ALH, thanks twice! Happy start of a new week to you, too.
Thank you thank you, S. :)
I will feel better in April, once the pollen goes away. ;)
Cheers and thanks for reading, L, and happy week!
Lovely. And that is one kick-ass coat.
Thank you, my friend! And yes, that is a Coat of coolness indeed. :)
Thank you, H_P -- and coming from you, who is v.v. awesome, it means a lot.
All the hugs!
