Today’s prompt: velvet, cloud, hippie
Finally got the husband out to an arts fair.
I was hankering for some pottery to go with
The new decor theme I’d settled on…
Maybe some pretty, functional woven
Baskets, too…if they were affordable.
Husband paints, so I’d appealed to his ego
Saying his canvases are surely superior
To what he’d see on display.
We barely had time to stop at the
Lemonade booth before he was frowning.
“What’s wrong?” I asked.
He growled, “hippies, everywhere”.
Good grief, the conservative old man.
I pushed him onward…and soon
Spied two perfect vases I adored.
The baskets were just okay, pricey
So I wandered over to the framed art
Searching for the artist of my heart.
“See anything good?” I asked him.
He harrumphed, said smugly: “You
Were right,” and pointed… “look at
That crap…‘Velvet Clouds’…I’d be
Embarrassed to sign my name to it.”
He didn’t even ask what I paid for the vases 🙂
