It was damask and silk with woven flowers,
Azure, ruby and evergreen on a backdrop of black velveteen.
Her favourite scarf.
She wore it like a shawl
skittered, off-centre a-kilter
slightly syncopated in the spirit of her slightly singular eccentricity.
Shades of sublime serendipity
Shades of anguish unfurling
Shades of Betty.
