WOMAN'S BAG

The guardian of female privacy
hides inside few ordinary things
and some magic
One can find in it:

shimmering silver portrait of the holder
and the redness of her lips,
handkerchiefs delicate as fog
soaked with her tears of joy and sadness,
notebook with white sheets
like angel wings
full of life prose and little poetry,
loose cards with culinary recipes
about how to cook dinner out of nothing,
tiny coins buzzing like golden bees
ready to support the smiles of the poor,
keys from the house
and heart of the beloved,
phone in a colorful case.

The woman's handbag contains
a few items
and the whole world of the owner
