Well this morning I woke from an interesting dream: I dreamt I was sleeping and woke rested and raring to go. Guess what? I did. And I’ve got a lot to do. Starting with back to poetry. Can I marry this prompt with a bit of Style from the Stylus?
…think of a single thing or person (a house, your grandmother, etc), and then write a poem that consists of kenning-like descriptions of that thing or person. For example, you might call a cat a mouse-stalker, quiet-walker, bird-warner, purr-former, etc. If you’re looking for examples, you can find one that Vince wrote here and a different example here.
So here goes. A poem about my first fashion icon.
Born with Style First-born, Hat-watcher, Re-applier, Sleeve-wearer. Migrant-nurser, Grandchild-firster. Far-traveler, Yarn unraveled. Democratic winker, Socialistic thinker. Great-lake resider Red-head Michigander. Sister to many, Friend to more, Daughter of the wisest, Mother, wife, and Nonnie. Always looks her bestest, Even at the wostest.
