her heart fluttered and
she clasped her breasts
as if they were gentle birds
about to leave their nests

More of Liepke’s women

Some of these have more style than substance, which I once read is a definition of decadence. Still, I think they capture something about women.

Artist: Malcolm Liepke.

Old photograph

I have posted this picture before but this is a clearer version. It is a photo of my wife before I had met her (at the top of course) and her late mother. They are dressed in Victorian era (or maybe Edwardian) costumes for fun. I suspect my wife is looking a bit severe to go with the general effect.
