Russian Dolls – small stone 15

Sitting silently on my shelf
With wide startled eyes and rosebud lips
Your smooth curves and shiny contours
Open to reveal hidden painted instruments
And unheard rhythms, tunes and songs.


These dolls sit on the shelf in my room where I work, listening to people tell their stories. Usually they are closed up and stacked inside each other. Today I opened them and remembered that they are painted with musical instruments.
