A woman ironing

She expressed again
what others have known..
the ironing chore found
quietly calming
 bringing sometimes
 bliss to a day..
What is behind this
 smoothing of wrinkles 
which serves such
 wellbeing and peace..?
Perhaps we find here 
in striking resemblance
an old story..
night becomes day
martha becomes mary
as our wrinkles 
are pressed..
With thanks to Bette
her example and sevice
and for this new
ironingboard parable...!
