Ragtag Daily Prompts: Pomp, November 5, 2019

Babies 1As Princess Pirouette progressed into the ballroom, two musicians proceeded her. One played a lute, the other a flute. She wore a white satin gown, over which was draped diaphanous veils, giving her the appearance of a blissful cloud floating across an otherwise blue sky. Three paces behind her walked a tenor who sang:

Princess Pirouette! Pirouette is our princess!

Such pomp had not been seen at court in many a year. Without adornment, she wore no golden chains or diamond tiaras, but still she sparkled. All in her presence were struck dumb by her refinement and beauty.

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar.
