Impromptu Dinner For Two

As the sun sets on the beautiful

Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Santa Fe . . .

The table is set for 

an impromptu dinner for two.

Candlelight and perhaps 

a zesty Margarita on the rocks.

The vibrant woven threads of a Mexican serape,

Talavera pottery, and flatware with a "twist"

provides interest and texture to the glass top table.

White cotton napkins tucked in small bowls,

one mustard yellow - the other rusty red . . .

Add a pop of bright color to the white dinner plates

rimmed in indigo and topped with fanciful floral salad plates.

A quiet spot for evening

 conversation with one's companion . . .

As each reflect on the day spent enjoying

the sights, sounds, and flavors of Santa Fe.
