Fabulous, Leanne! I can relate, and I love the food metaphors.
Thank you thank you!!
I pity them, the poor distracted fools
Who, gawking at those round and shiny jewels,
O’er looked the greater beauty they adorned –
The once by whom those very jewels were worn.
Ah, but there’s a benefit to this –
Those blinded by the surface feature miss
The greater treasure, leaving us who see
A better share of that lady’s beauty.
Oh stop you’re making me blush! Also, this is pretty rad. Thanks!
Thank you! I love your poetry, and felt inspired to respond in kind 🙂
I just stumbled across your blog today, and I have to say, I adore reading your poems. They never end how I think they will, and this one, especially, resonated with me. I’ve lived this feeling many times over, and I’ve never read something that defines such a phenomenon so precisely and accurately. So talented! I look forward to reading more of your work with my morning coffee!! ❤
Welcome! Thanks for checking out my stuff! I’m honored that it resonated with you. I hope you stop by again 🙂 –Leanne
Are not thy eyes your jewels, peach cheeks and a glowing smile, that should make them run a mile. And what of your pearl teeth as you speak , dam they must be blind.
