This poem was originally featured on the BlogNostics website so some of my readers may not have seen it. I feel like running it again as I am approaching my birthday because I have vowed to do things that I love this week! Pink is one of my favorite colors and it’s Tuesday, so… Here is Wearing Pink on Tuesday. Enjoy!
the lovely color seeped into my blood stream
causing a fuchsia-bomb of possibilities
my smile was liquid and flowed wide
exposing vanilla covered enamel
and a cherry red tongue
limbs were loose
stride was strong
hips were bouncing to their own beat
the sun shone on my crown
transforming its dimmed highlights
into a kaleidoscope of colors
birds sang sweet symphonies
while kittens meowed melodies
and wrapped themselves around my ankles
each step was like a milestone
conversations became fellowships
glances were awakenings
wearing pink on tuesday turned my hello world
into hallelujah and holla if you hear me!
what in the world would i wear on wednesday?
