Hokey Pokey (What this blog's all about)

A writing challenge I've given myself to write every day for six months. After some posts, I'll put in a comment with a brief explanation of the inspiration for the piece. Some posts will be practice for bigger projects: character sketches or settings. I don't really know what all will happen which is why I'm doing it.

Day 21

If it is he that should go first
She'll save his sadle
the labors of love in the years of oils
will peel her onion soul
layers she'll pile on each season
winter coats warming
until her time to meet him

And if it is he,
her wedding dress will hold him
it's antique pressed lace arms
enfolding him
until scents are gone
and fibers turn to dust
and it is his turn to meet her

  1. I had an idea about an elderly woman who destroys her wedding dress but felt like I've been writing about too many female characters lately so wrote this instead. I think I like it better.
