Hiroshima Poet

by AJ/Skald

The girl in the green kimono appears to be a writer or poet. She curls a small notepad close to her chest... holds it directly under her nose, and writes in bursts. When she pauses, she holds it against her body, lifts her chin, and stares forward.... then drops her eyes to the paper to write again. What a fascinating image she portrays--

Why is she dressed in a kimono? What is she writing? What was she reading earlier? I'm enchanted. Is she composing poetry or just making a shopping list?

I choose to imagine the first.... a poet dressed in a kimono sitting in a Starbucks- composing. Its the more romantic option and thus the one I prefer.
