I want to make scarves from the sky.
Since I’m not much of a seamstress,
here’s hoping it won’t be too hard.
To start I’ll just pick up a fleecy
white cloud to cover my neck.
Maybe create a dove grey scarf
and cut out pale blue ones too.
Make entire closets full of them.
At sunset I will fashion boas
of bright ruby and tangerine.
My midnight shawl will be long
gleaming ebony covering my
shoulders keeping me warm.
If lucky I’ll find some rainbows…
kaleidoscopes to wrap up in.
I will list them on eBay and Craig’s,
hang pictures on my Facebook wall.
Imagine, everybody will want them!
Would you like one too?
Better put your order in now.
