One Single Impression: Skin

[posted Thursday, January 8, 2009 -- postdated 'Sunday']


Skin is magical stuff to me
Bone cloak take for granted unless
scratches bruises are there to see
A small worry nevertheless

Hot wind blows it so very dry
T’will be all right for this old man
drug store’s magic fix I can try
Woman dare not leave hers to tan

A little too much wine I’ll flush
Still sway and dance with the royal
just go the merry night with blush
The next day’s sun I wake all pale

Freckles from my grandpa I got
Not a problem for me at all
I’ve lived with them they mean a lot
Though girls rue them a gift with gall

This funny skin now I reflect
Its God’s forgotten part of me
all in his glorious plan I ‘spect
I’ll gladly take it like it be

shiny sea of salt
shiny see of skin I like
QM2 sun deck

You're so right, Jim. We forget our skin until it has a problem. Yet even when we're good to it, it gives us away! Be careful around the wine!

That was worth waiting a week for! Enjoyed your poetic inventory of the prompt very much.

This is the problem - we forget the wrapper and get to what's inside.
Late but worth it.

Dancing, wine, sunshine penned in clever poem - who could wish for more? Nicely done...

Those look like your feet in the picture on the right. You had the ugly feet contest, and I remember yours.

Read somewhere that our skin is the biggest organ in our body.
