The Long Blue Blanket – A poem

An unusual scene at a city stoplight,

A hooded stranger in the noon light,

Body shrouded in a long blue blanket.

The figure utters whispers on her plight,

Cuddling unbridled tears in the blanket.

Onlookers avoid her gaze and she theirs.

Passersby kept their distance; she hers.

Sadness cloaked sound from the ether,

But, her emotions spoke volumes there

By the tender way,

That she held in gentle sway,

That long blue blanket.
