as a country girl
there are three times in life where
you get dressed up
proms, weddings, someone’s funeral
deep in the Fall season
I don’t know how many times I’ll be able to do Tanka Tuesdays in a row, but I am going to get a couple up this month. I will continue to post something every Monday for you, and I will try to make it a haiku. And yes, I exaggerate a little in this poem, but I was speaking of formal dresses, which I have worn 5 times in my 31 years. Just for kicks, here I am dressed up on my 31st birthday. You can’t see my bottom half, but that’s alright because I was wearing jeans anyway.
