The silk scarf adorned her lovely soft neck
Neck that it caressed, knot tied or free
Free to imagine how he’d ask for her hand
Hand with French manicure that strung him around
Around the other scarves he acted aloof
Aloof because he was jealous they got attention too
Too bad, he sighed, as she picked another one today
Today was just not his lucky day.
Today is the 20th day of the OctPoWriMo Poetry Writing 2015. The prompt today was to write a love poem. There was a suggestion that it could even be between inanimate objects.
I was searching for inspiration.. people-watching aimlessly and just happened to see a girl walking down the road with a shawl around her neck. Voila!
Hope you enjoyed it.
