Thoughts on life, fashion, fabulousness, and (oh yeah) dressing up from a full-time male who's a part-time female

A poem: “Cold Weather”

Leave a comment

Okay, I’m going to try my hand at this poetry thing again.  The chilly weekend we’re having in Wisconsin (and it’s going to be just as chilly in the coming week) is the inspiration for this quick ode:

Cold weather

There’s snow on the ground
And snow in the air
There’s minus signs in the forecast
For temperatures not very fair

I can feel this weather
Even though I’m snugly secure inside
I can feel it in my nose and throat
And pray it subsides by sunrise

This is lovely weather?!

Oh, sure it looks lovely
But the cold is nothing to love

At least I am inside
Where I have a perfect way
To keep the cold at bay

Just slip on a bathing suit
Pull out a wide-brimmed sun hat
Perhaps add a matching shawl
Strap on some flip-flops
And close my eyes

Sure, it’s winter outside
But if the bedroom light above me can be the sun
And my bedspread can be the sand
It can be a lovely summer day
Virtually any day

(Take that, Old Man Winter)

Full-time middle-aged male. Long-time overworked office drone. Part-time female fashion plate. Amateur fashionista (emphasis on "amateur"). Admirer and supporter of those who are fashionable, fabulous, and friendly. A little bit silly. Absolutely nowhere near perverted. I am a real human being, just like you. Able to share thoughts about my life experiences, fashion sense, and the world at large despite middling grades in high school creative writing class (but at least I do look cute when I'm writing, so that has to count for something).

Leave a good word or two :)
