OFOTW and NaPoWriMo 2015

It’s April and that means it’s National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWrMo.) And it’s Wednesday, the day I began posting an outfit of the week.  So, today I marry the two: An outfit and a poem. Both are a stretch to me.

Today’s prompt is a poem of negation – yes (or maybe, no), I challenge you to write a poem that involves describing something in terms of what it is not, or not like.  (from NaPoWriMo.net)


"What I'm not"

 
Brown-eyed and lithesome and unaware;
Naked and Long-tressed  with Siliconed breasted.
Stilettoed and Slinky and Leggy-limbed;
Bound and Pinched and Hemmed up to there.
Jumpy and nervous and ready to swim.

(
I'm good with
Blued-eyed and thicker and conscious and clear.
Covered and coiffed and underwired.
Balanced and Mindful and practicing Here.
Touching my toes to new water,
Steadying myself to dive in.
)

      Thanks, Rena. Poetry and fashion are both challenges for me.
