For the month of April, I'll be writing poetry each day in celebration of National Poetry Month. I've decided not choose a theme, not to plan the writing, but instead to wait to see what poetry finds me each day.
It's also Friday. Today I'm joining the Poetry Friday community as they celebrate poetry. Today Robyn Hood Black is hosting at Life on the Deckle Edge. Stop by and join the celebration.
Today I decided to have a little fun. Where would I be without black pants?
Dear Black Pants
Each day into my closet I do reach,
For a pair of black pants ready to wear.
I do ignore the constant inner speech.
It's reprimand, I can no longer bear.
Black pants you do make my life a dream
With the great ease you bring to each new day.
You make each morning easy it does seem.
I love you more than blue or beige or gray.
With you black pants, any shirt I may choose.
Everything looks just fine with you, pants dear.
No matter my choice, I just cannot lose.
You make my early mornings free of fear.
But I must move past you, please do see.
Please know, dear pants, it isn't you, it's me.
