. . . . And we’re off.
April PAD Day 1/Prompt 1: Write a new arrival poem.
Yellow linened lady,
third pew from the front,
Spring-ironed and Easter-pressed,
proud carnation straw bonnet dressed
upon wisps of grey and age,
a smile curled beneath pearl earrings and
a trickle of peachy rough.
In her white gloved hand a hymn
of rejoicing, in her pattering heart,
the sting of pride.
She taps the rhythm upon the oak
flooring with her spanking new
patent leather lily-white pumps
ignoring the hushing from behind.
This poem prompt is combined with WSS’s poem prompt to write about our own
Easter customs. In this case, I showed rather than tell about mine.
The new white gloves, the new white bonnets, the spanking new
white Easter shoes. And I showed it as I will be when I get old(er).
