Morning Ritual

makeupA pool of warm water cradled in her hand anoints the face
buffed smooth with terry cloth
the canvas now set
the tools at hand
she blends the skin tone into something more desirable
a surface lacking imperfections
she then defines the eyes and shapes the nose;
finally she outlines, then colors in her expression
one designed to last the day.
