Picture on her profile

23 Jan


Her picture on her profile.

It began with that.

His long finger was arrested in its lazy, languid, bored downwards scroll by her image.

A slight intake of breath. An appreciative lift of the eyebrows. A smile. An impossible sense of recognition.

He did not know her, but she seemed familiar.

He studied her face. The eyes, the mouth, the nose, the cheekbones.

He stroked the stubble on his chin, and leaned forward slightly in his chair.

With his eyes closed he imagined her.  And he could picture her completely in his head.

He guided the cursor and clicked the ‘follow’ button.

Her picture on her profile.

It began with that.

The photograph is obviously of the incredibly talented and very lovely Lana Del Rey. For many reasons she, and this picture, were perfect as an illustration for the post. It is used without permission, but I am sure she will not mind.

    I’m sure she is lovely and this was wonderfully recited as always.

    The imagination is off and running. Lana is a knock-out, no one cares if she can carry a tune or not. Thank you Mr. D.

      Smiles. Thank you
      I adore Lana. My favourite artist of the last four years. And that is saying something. Something resonates with me …
