Smiling
laughing at me
through the window.
Golden locks
framing
her high cheekbones
and tiny nose.
She drives away
slowly waving one hand
out the window to me
behind her....

nice short poem about saying goodbye.  question for you to ponder though, why is she waving goodbye did she have to move or are you and her parting ways?

Does it matter??

This piece is about a single moment trapped in his memory about a single wave goodbye....don't matter why she left...maybe she was just going down to the beach for a week to relax...or maybe had just come up and visited for a while and was going home...
The worst thing to do is to try and add real life to some of my poems because they are VERY seldom drawn from mine...this piece in particular comes from a picture on the cover of a magazine of a woman pulling away and waving goodbye...  Don't matter why she's leaving, where she's going or when she's coming back (if ever)... fact is she's gone and that's what we are seeing...her leaving.

Thanks for the reply by the way epoet...as you can see...I likes to keep em guessing...
