A skittish little party number to dispel the gloom cast by a week of Weather and Football: what a dismal combination!


FANCY DRESS


Gonna dress me in water,
gonna dress me in ice
the foam of Niagara
might look kinda nice.

The fires of Fuji,
some hotcoals from Faro
would sure cut a dash
as my Spanish bolero.

A couple of berries
strategically placed,
a collar of pine cones
to show off my face.

A bodice of sand from
the dunes of Sahara,
the stars of Orion
to wear as tiara.

My wonderful wardrobe
such colourful schemes
quick-changes each night
in deep forests of dreams.

I'm looking forward to the hot fires melting your ice dress so I can find out what kind of berries they are. Patrick

Kate, I will accept every fancy description you have eluded to here my dear friend. Dresses are my wife's domain and if I am elected to tag along on selection and purchase day, my bane. You make it all seem so marvelous. It must be the woman's perspective that makes it so. As for those "couple of berries strategically placed", ahem ? Love your take on this whimsy Kate. I bid you love and peace.Jon Michael

A lot of fun and playfulness in this poem, Kate.

Madame Yvonde, the famous pioneer English colour photographer could have had a field day with your sartorial images.

Kate you always find such unique and lovely inspirations to wrap up in a custom made suit of adjectives that always takes us into your mind set. This is lovely and a great write to give hope on a damp wet foggy day like we are having here.

You'll surely be noticed in that snowy forest in that outfit, Kate. I especially like the berries and pine cones!
Reviewed by John Flanagan
Here's whimsy no man dare write, Kate, or aspire to... at least in public!
But having said that, it has the delicate sigh and heave of satins, the flow of silk in those 'deep forests of dreams.'
Gorgeous!

Being a costume designer by profession, I can appreciate the topic of this poem...by the way I am the Quick change queen...I can make a 20 second quick change as you blink your eyes..



I love the dreamy feel of this poem, but the solidarity of it also.

As girls we always dreamed of that princess dress of pink and our prince charming stealing us away and taking off that pink dress, oops that wasn't pg I better behave..lol



Lovely poetry, Kate, as always I enjoy your work.



Peace love and light,

Amber
