Steam iron – small stone 5

Resting at an angle, poised and ready,
fresh in white and lilac, curved organic shape.
Water gurgles and creaks in your transparent belly.
You hiss, spit and then shoot steam.
Gliding with soothing warmth,
you smooth all wrinkles in your path.

Writing prompt – noticing what’s around us and finding what we need in familiar places…

  1. I never thought to write about an iron, though I like ironing.
    And I just got a new iron! Yay for me.
    well written prose, btw,

    • Thanks for your comment Maureen. Writing this made me really look at my iron, colours, shape etc. So much that’s familiar just goes unnoticed!
      I like ironing too, I find it comforting… 🙂
