Keeping with the theme of women…. And acrostic poem
With a flick of a wrist, the paper is ripped off
Open up the silver box made of paper
Murmur a surprise at what’s inside
Every bit of delight at the stone the size of a hazelnut
Now that’s what a woman does with a ring that big.
Linger on the sparkle of candy
Ignore the indulgent smile of your man
Keep holding the ring in the light to shine
Enjoy the weight on your finger, so heavy
Grin like a silly idiot
Immensely happy thoughts dangle in your brain
Finger the stone so bright and green
Trinkets of glitter are so pleasing to have
See? women like gifts.
Wasn’t sure where I was going other than when I thought of gifts and women, for some reason I went to Christmas and a ring under the tree. Glittery things. I’m not sure I carried on with the simile very well, but the acrostic went okay. I’m not a huge fan of an acrostic unless it’s in rhyme. But this fits more with how I thought it could be. I feel like it’s an action poem. Like it’s happening right now. So, kind of cool.
