A single word Poem, "Burnish"

Burnish Me

I love to be burnished
Not the result rather the act
What is going here

On that I yield to Marriam
Marriam-Webster tells it all
Sister in need, I call
"Synonyms for burnished

Burnish 'til I glisten
Really though I love being rubbed
Rub my feet any day

Or my back or my neck
Shoulders cry, "Never get enough" 
This kitten purrs for you

MErriam odd that you perceive yourself as a kitten. And yes, rub my feet all the day long.

To be burnished as a person one would end up shiny and brilliant like an inanimate object. If only it can be done. It would be lots of fun, Dr Jim!

Humans really have burnished themselves too much over the last two millenia. I wonder if it is because we are not honest anymore so must always show a false face?

This is interesting and reminds me of maybe the process of being tattooed as well.

Sounds wonderful to be rubbed like that.

Only you would go in this direction ... a compliment.

I remember my trip to San Francisco. The husband and I treated ourselves to foot massages and boy was it a lifesaver when going up and down those hills!

To be rubbed the right way. Such a treat.

First pedicure and massage was quite an eye opener - I was in my 40's. It truly is purr-worthy :)
