The homeless woman—Three Word Wednesday

This week (no. 452) the words are:

Ragged, adjective: (of cloth or clothes) old and torn,

Threatening, adjective: having a hostile or deliberately frightening quality or manner,

Unsightly, adjective; unpleasant to look at; ugly.

The homeless woman in July

She’s not threatening
as she daily rides her bike
through the neighborhood
of suburban  McMansions.
Dressed in heavy pilled sweaters ,
a ragged hand knit hat blue
from the church missionary barrel,
and unsightly galoshes with treads.
Perhaps she knows that
Cold winds will blow soon.
