Oh how I love this take! Would have never thought the figure was a mother-to-be. Beautiful!
smiles...i like how the warmth is transferred in this...bath to belly to baby to towel...a lot of warmth in that connection, mother to child...
Beautifully done. Warmth is infectious.
That's cute, Helen. Nice for a Sunday afternoon.Blessings and Bear hugs!Bears Noting
I wondered if anyone would notice. It's the most important thing about this I think, that she is carrying a child.
warm and cozy- although labor is not- thanks
The best feeling in the world - baths and motherhood. Long may they both last!!
Gracious and so smoothly written...
Really nice, Helen! I love the comparison of the warm bath water to amniotic fluids. This is all making me want a long soak in a hot bath with a good book.
Ah, I saw that curve of belly too Helen. You've laid out an entire novel, and entire life in the well chosen details of your nine brief lines.
The baby bump caught my eye too, for it explains the tilt of her head...
Beautiful Helen , sounds like someone who knows
magnificent poem Helen- I missed the fact that she is pregnant- but now I see! Cheers!
Such a dream piece...!!I am truly amazed how that painting has taken us venturing into new paths...paint me in many hues, not just black
I have just noticed the baby bump! Nice take...
So primal..warm water of life.. lovely, so real!
Lovely. You have 'been there, done that!' X
I thought that I had replied earlier, but I don't see it and I am not sure if you are moderating. (If this is a duplicate, please feel free to delete). This is an exquisite write. I never noticed that she was pregnant and now I don't know how I missed it.
Looks like we were thinking along the same lines, Helen. Beautiful writing.
Nice progression with the towel!
Beautiful and tender...
I thought I saw a little peek of tummy there myself...Lovely.=)
I love your take on the prompt its gorgeous, your choice of words is perfect
I am so glad you wrote about her lovely (big) belly. I noticed she was pregnant right off... but it didn't fit in with my poem. She is gazing at her belly - to me that is what this image is about, and the protectiveness... which brings the warm towel in to play. Just a lovely image, and a lovely poem.
I didn't see the big belly but I do now. What I saw was a voluptuous woman ....this was a warm and beautiful poem. Lovely!
That's a different take! Nice change from all the sexual ones.
