A to Z Challenge: M




A poem for today.  With a title. Woo hoo!




Melinda

She bundles her secrets
In the folds of her kimono
And follows her origami dreams,
On swallows’ wings,
Through pagodas that reek
Of wisdom and sushi.
The computer-age samurai
Examine this occidental geisha
Over cups of tea
And chopsticks heavy with rice,
Fingers itching to loosen her obi
And unravel her mystery.
